64-bit Java

iVocalize runs under both 32-bit Java and 64-bit Java on both Windows and Mac OS X.

For users running 64-bit Java, the latest release of Java 7 is required from http://java.com in order for the co-browsing feature to function.

The Java 7 embedded browser is HTML 5 compliant, however, plugins such as Flash are no longer supported due to increased security.

If you rely on synchronized browsing and flash slides for your presentations, then you must recreate your slides in HTML 5 format, or show your slides using the Live Screencasting or Whiteboard features.

The presentation recording feature is unavailable under 64-bit Java, but recordings can be made with a screen recording application such as Camtasia.

Under 64-bit Windows, it is possible to use 32-bit Java by following these steps:

  1. close all applications
  2. open Control Panel -> Programs and Features, and uninstall all versions of Java
  3. open 32-bit Internet Explorer and visit java.com to receive the latest 32-bit Java 7 download

On Mac OS 10.5 and 10.6, 32-bit Java is available by default and is automatically used by iVocalize.

On OS 10.7 and later, only 64-bit Java is available.
