Note: Java is not installed on most Bucknell University owned computers due to security risks.  If you are prompted to install Java, please contact the Tech Desk for assistance.

If you use NOLIJ, you must have a specific version of Java installed on your computer.  This will not be the most current version, so your web browsers may repeatedly prompt you to install the latest Java.  DON’T DO IT!  The most current version of Java will not work with NOLIJ.

Follow these instructions if you are directed to upgrade the version of Java for NOLIJ.

  9. Mixed content – NOTE: You will need to read each message and respond in a manner that allows Java and NOLIJ to run.  Do not click without reading the warnings.  If you aren’t sure how to respond to a warning, please take a look at the Java/NOLIJ warnings instructions.
