Uninstalling old JDK/JRE versions

Posted 19 June 2012 - 12:41 AM

i currently have a bunch of old versions of the jdk and jre laying around on my hdd. both 64 and 32 bit versions. i really want to get rid of all this old stuff and consolidate everything. i just don't want to mess my system up - like my environment variable/classpath stuff and whatever i have that may be relying on those settings.

so what is the best/safest way to go about doing all this? also, is there any reason not to get the 64bit version of the jdk/jre? the up-to-date versions that i have now are 32bit, but i think i would just rather get rid of them and get the 64b versions if there isn't a good reason not to do so.

i apologize in advance for asking such a trivial/silly question

OK. Let's check your vars (assuming Windows). Can you open cmd.exe and post output of
echo %CLASSPATH%

and
echo %PATH%

Not the most efficient way to search a directory path :) But you have only one JDK declared
Your Microsoft SQL Serve is also repeated a couple of times
