Chat failures

6 posts in this topic

I have a newer laptop and I cannot get chat working. I installed .NET package, I reinstalled java several times.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi Kamlesh,

I had a similar issue. I disabled Java because I read there were problems with it. When I went to go on chat it wouldn't work so I installed it and reinstalled it with no success. I found I had to go into my system preferences and enable it.

Now, if I can just coordinate my schedule to get into the chat sessions!

Hope this helps,

Hi Miocean,

Thanks!

Where can I find system preferences?

I found system configurations and did not find java there.


Kind regards,

I sent you a message.

 

Can anyone else help get Kamlesh set up for chat?

Hi Kamlesh,

 

The browser settings for Java are in your Browser's menu (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox or AOL, etc.), usually in the Tools or Settings or Preferences drop-down menu.  You can google, for example, "enable java in (insert your browser's name here)" and find instructions.

I'm posting the answer in this thread since many other people with the same issue might eventually stumble upon this thread, and then be able to join us in the weekly ISN Forums Hosted Chats.

Hi Kamlesh,

 

I hope you've been able to get Java to work and will be able to join us in the chat room.

 

Just a small point, if you've got a new laptop and are running Windows 8, you might find that despite installing Java, every time you try to go into the chat room, you get a small error message and it won't work.

 

I'm almost certain that this is to do with the latest Java update, as in a moment of madness, I upgraded to Windows 8 on one of my computers and have had quite a few problems with it, not least being unable to get into the chat room! It works perfectly well on Vista, so I'm pretty sure it's a Windows 8 compatibility problem with the latest Java update, as it did work alright previously.

 

To date I haven't been able to find a way round it, despite checking all my Java settings, which are correct. Fortunately, having more than one computer, I can go into the chat room on one of the others, but it's very annoying, to say the least!

 

Kind regards,
