(info) This was an unintentional change that we are planning to adjust in the next release. We apologize if this causes inconveniences on your attempt to upgrade. Note, we will be deprecating Java 7 support for this product in the near future so you should be prepared to install the latest supported JVM, which is always a good idea to ensure performance and security of your Java programs.
