About Java 7
If you installed ArchiCAD 17 with Wibu protection you might need to install Java 6 separately in order to run ArchiCAD with your key. WkConfig requires Java 6, so if it is not present on your computer use Java 6u32 installer from the above list.
ArchiCAD 16 Hotfixes
If you are installing an ArchiCAD 16 Hotfix on Windows platform, Java 6 will be required even if Java version 7 has been already installed on your computer. If Java 6 is not present on your Windows you can download and install from the links above. The two Java versions will not interfere.
If you are installing ArchiCAD 16 and Java version 7 has been installed on your computer, the installer (or un-installer) of ArchiCAD will install the required Java version 1.6.32. The two Java versions will not interfere.
ArchiCAD 11 - ArchiCAD 15
If you are installing ArchiCAD 11-15 and Java version 7 is installed, the installers (or un-installers) of ArchiCAD won't work. To make them work:
- Temporarily uninstall the version 7 Java:
open Control Panel
Remove Java 7
- Install the one from the previous list for the version of ArchiCAD you have. (In most of the cases when you install Java version 7 (1.7) the old Java version will be kept, so you only need to remove Java 7 in order to make the GRAPHISOFT installer work.)
- Install/Uninstall the ArchiCAD version.
After that you can reinstall the original Java version from: http://java.com/en/
Uninstall Java at your own risk. Refer to http://java.com/en/ for the proper uninstall procedure. The removal of Java may have adverse affects on your system and is not advised unless you understand the risk and are competent at performing such procedures.
