F-secure healthcheck and java 64bit


F-secure healthcheck and java 64bit


To use f-secure health check on windows 8 64bit I have to install the 32bit version of java. I would think the same would be true on windows 7 64bit as well. 

I hope that in future the 64bit version of java can be used so I do not need the 32bit version of java just for one website.
