    ZD is great. Can we have some info about any future update? I’m not talking about 7.2.8, I’m talking about ZD 8.x !

    I have used ZD for many years and I am very pleased with it but, for the past year or so I have not been able to upgrade ZD. Every time I attempt to upgrade I get java is out of date or not installed error. I have several programs that require java and have no problems with them finding java no my system.

    Can someone please provide a solution to this problem before my out dated version of ZD is no longer useful.

    Many Thanks for any help!

      @JoeD, you are probably using a version of JRE that is incompatible with ZD. ZD will not work with anything newer than JRE 7 32 Bit. Note the 32 Bit, 64 Bit JREs don’t work either. If you require 64 Bit JRE or a newer JRE for other applications, depending on your platform, there are different ways to set it up such that only ZD uses the older JRE and the rest of your applications use the system’s default JRE.

      Hi Jim, I have no problem with setting up a JRE just for ZD. Can you give me more detail of setting this up or point me in the right direction so that I can get the information and finality get ZD up to date.

      Thank you very much for your help,
