Java for Playbook

I am trying to install JRE1.6 on my Playbook. Each time I try to open the download file I receive a message saying...Unable to find default application...getting very close to throwing it in the bin and buying a Google Nexus

You cannot install that on the playbook.  Everything on the playbook is written based on the QNX operating system.

Same deal applies for other  files written for windows, mac, etc.  Is something not working or what kind of issue are you having that you are trying to get the Java runtime installed?  If this is browser related, the browser does support javascript.  See here for the browser options.

I hope this helps
