I got ver 1.7 of that program (from a software site, and it was bundled with a JRE). Using the program, I checked out its own website, and noticed that it's up to ver 2.3. So, I tried to d/l the basic (no bundled JRE) version, but was sent to java.com to d/l Java! huh? I know that it's installed. Thus my post.
