JavaFX SDK on Windows

The minimum system requirements to install JavaFX 1.3 SDK on Windows are as follows: 

  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 (32 bit), Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (32 bit), or Windows 7 (32 bit)
  • Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 3.0
  • Java SE Development Kit (JDK) 6 Update 13.  JDK 6 Update 18 or later is recommended.

To begin, visit http://javafx.com/downloads/all.jsp.  Look for the JavaFX SDK section.  At the time of this writing, JavaFX 1.3.1 SDK is the latest version.  Click on the Download button.


When asked to select the platform, choose Windows.  Check the box and agree to the JavaFX SDK License Agreement.

Click on the file name to begin the download of the JavaFx Windows .exe installer file.

Save the file in the location of your choice.
Once the file is downloaded, go to the location where you saved it (i.e. your Desktop).  Double-click the file.

When the popup appears, select Run to begin the JavaFx installation wizard. 

Before the installation begins, a validation of your system will be performed to ensure that you have all the minimum requirements.  If you are missing any of the requirements, a Prerequisites Wizard will appear to help you download all the necessary components prior to installing the JavaFX SDK.  If this applies, your installation process will be a bit longer than usual.  Allow the Prerequisites Wizard to download whatever is necessary by following its on-screen instructions.  Once it downloads and installs the missing components, the JavaFX SDK Setup Wizard will begin automatically.

Click Next to continue.

Select the installation folder.  The default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\JavaFX\javafx-sdk1.3\
Click Next.

Click Install to allow the Wizard to begin installation.  You can click Back if you want to change any of your settings prior to installation.  The installation may take a few minutes to complete.

Once the installation is completed, click Finish.
