Java on XP

these days i was wanting to play minecraft (alphas-1.5x) on my PC, so i’m having a issue with java installer, i click on the icon of installer and…

Nothing happens. Why? idk


this only works for update java ?

Ever since Oracle broke their Installers on Java 8 Update 161/162 and never fixing, users weren’t able to install it officially, but some found that extracting the tar.gz archive downloadable from Oracle with an Oracle account and extracting the contents of it to the directory where your Java is installed(e.g C:\Program Files\Java) seemed to work.

Or just use update 51 as it’s the same update the Minecraft launcher uses
