ExpertAssist giving errors about Java with Chrome 42

Something I thought I would share. Was trying to use ExpertAssist yesterday and it said java was out of date, but I have the most recent version.

Java is not installed or it is disabled. Please download and install Java version 1.5.0_5 or above. Chrome users must install the latest Java version. 

I found that with Chrome version 42 you have to enable NPAPI:




If you have Chrome version 42 or higher, you have to enable NPAPI for Java to work right.


Once I followed that article, it worked like a charm!


  • Keep in mind this is a short-term solution, as the Chromium team have announced their plan is to remove NPAPI support permanently by the end of the year. - tshupp 9 years ago
