Correct Java version for eClass Blackboard Vista on WindowsPosted on January 30th, 2012 1 comment
For best performance of eClass Blackboard Vista on Windows XP, Vista, or 7, users should avoid using versions 1.6.0_27 or 1.6.0_29. The best choice is to upgrade to the latest version, version 6 update 30 (1.6.0_30), as this has resolved the issues with the chat forum and quizzes that had been identified with version 29 (see the following support post for more information).
To get the latest version of Java, visit www.java.com and click on the ‘Free Java Download’ button.
If you have other system requirements that prevent you from moving to the latest version, the previous stable recommended version is 1.6.0_26.
