Can not access Banner in Windows. Java error will not allow you to access Banner in Windows.

** OIT recommends using Internet Explorer on Windows computers when accessing Banner. **

Banner only supports Java (Versions  7, Update 1) up to (Version 7, Update 60) with the exception of (Java 7, Update 21) in Windows. Three causes can be preventing you from accessing Banner. Reason one, Java is not installed. Reason two, your version is too old and you will need to remove the older version, and install (Java Version 7, Update 60). The third cause could be the Java cache file, which needs to be cleared.
