  • Installing JRE Software (PDF)
    In order to launch and run Internet Native Banner (INB) (the current version of Administrative Banner), all computers must have the software, Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6.0_04, installed. Your computer system will automatically prompt you to install this software if needed. If your system is running applications that already require this version of JRE or higher, you will not be prompted to install the software. NOTE: Mozilla Firefox will not install the correct version, therefore, the initial installation of JRE 1.6.0_04 should be completed using Internet Explorer, then Mozilla Firefox will run the correct JRE software.
