This program uses java to run, but apparently the programmers of this diabetes glucose meter data accumulation doesn't seem to have feeling with the times...

it uses still jre 19 windows instead of 20.
it took me a long time to figure that out.

has somebody else the same experience or similar situations?

like to hear from you....

@amj 2010,

Some websites and some software are/have been known to use older versions of Java and Adobe Shockwave .

The Java website still says that you can keep/run older versions :-

http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/remove_olderve...

You maybe should point out to Bayer that u 19 is possibly insecure (due to a plug-in vulnerabilty) ; the rik will depend on the programme and how you use it , etc

Shockwave 11.x is/was (?) backwards compatible to 10.x .

Usually , you will be prompted to download/offered the required version . You have to decide/try to quantify if there is a risk by accepting an "out of date" potentially vulnerable programme on your computer .

Take care
Anthony
