ZipFormsOnline Fix | Updating Java | Fix for setup error 5



This the fix I figured out for ZipformsOnline and its refusal to properly update java.  This has worked on many machines, but please make a backup before trying any fix like this.  Any questions about this, please email me at


First delete all versions of Java from within the control panal.


While you are there, you need to go to "folder options" section and make sure that

Show hidden files, folders and drives is SELECTED and Hide protected operations system files in NOT SELECTED.

If this makes your nervous, just mark them back when you are finished.

Go to explorer and click on your c: drive and work you way to this folder

C;/USERS/**your computer name**/AppData/LocalLow/

Delete the "SUN" Folder and close that window.

Open IE (I am a chrome person, but it doesn't like zipforms) so open IE.  go to and download latest version of java.

When this is finished, you can test if you want, but close IE and reopen an start zipforms.

You will be promped two or three times to verify that you want to run Java.  Click the "don't ask me again" box and they say yes each time.


Now go write a few contracts!
