Ken, if it's 64 bit machine, you should look into C:\Program Files (x86). Java is still 32 bit. I had a problem with the 64 bit version of JDK 6.0.29 because SQL*Developer refused to cooperate. It needed a 32 bit version. BTW, if anyone is interested, SQL*Developers and Oracle JDBC drivers work perfectly with the "IcedTea" version on freeware Linux distributions like Ubuntu or Fedora.
