Hi,

Kindly note that I cannot install the software, when I try installing it informs me to download the latest version of java, which I had already downloaded and installed.

Please assist.

Hi

Can you say what platform (Windows, Linux, Mac?) you are on?
If you are on Windows, I'd suggest trying the download called "Windows kit with embedded Java" as the first option 

Best wishes

Owen

FYI...

Java 8 (a.k.a. 1.8) was the last version that updated automatically and is mistakenly assumed by many as "the latest Java version" by Windows and Mac users.  Java 8 is very old.  Oracle does not do auto-updates for Java any longer.  The latest Java version is 19 as of this message.  Also, the difference between the JRE and JDK no longer exists.  You essentially get the JDK and can use the "jlink" command to minimize the Java libraries down to the ones you need for a particular project.  OR does something similar with the embedded Java.
