I always install 32-bit and 64-bit Java on Windows 64-bit editions, 
since 32-bit applications only use 32-bit Java and the same applies for 
64-bit applications, which only use 64-bit Java.


I just recently detected that installing Java without removing the old 
version first will leave the UUID of the old installation active, so 
removing Java by removing all releases will hang the process.

So it is best to only remove the latest Java version instead of removing 
all previous versions too.
