One of our applications won't run with the 7.x upgrade. Until it is upgraded I've been told to downgrade back to v6. I can't find the Win32 version to download. Does someone know where it might be archived?
You have a SERIOUS problem at your organization.
They have allowed someone to install software (JDK v6) without keeping the original version of that software in a version control system. Your IT manager should interview everyone and find out who is trying to sabotage his department.
The second mistake that was made was to upgrade to 7.x without confirming that a backup of v6 was available.
Mistakes like the above should NEVER be tolerated and you should recommend to your IT manager that they adopt new procedures an policies to prevent that from happening in the future.
You can find ALL of the available JDK versions from the same Oracle download page you downloaded 7.x from
The 'Previous Releases' link will take you to a page where you can select by 'version'.
And the 'Java SE 6' link will take you to a page that has links for ALL available version 6 downloads
You need to determine what exact version of v6 you were actually using and download that version. Don't make another mistake by just downloading a v6 version that may still not be compatible with features you were previously using.
Your IT manager should interview everyone and find out who is trying to sabotage his department.
That's a -bit- over the top, likely it is just the result of someone slacking off
And clicking the "Previous Releases" link on http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html doesn't help?
Here's a hint, it DOES help. If the package to download does not EXPLICITLY contain "x64", it is the 32 bit version.
