SQL SERVER 2019 – Oracle JRE 7 Update 51 (64 Bit) or Higher is Required

This is my second blog about SQL Server 2019. My previous blog was about the release announcement of SQL Server 2019 CTP version. SQL Authority News – Microsoft Released SQL Server 2019 Preview. In this blog post, we will discuss about Oracle JRE 7 Update.

As my habit, I always wanted to try new things and share my knowledge with my blog readers. I downloaded ISO file, mounted it and ran setup.exe. I kept moving in the wizard and selected all features. I was stuck at below screen.

(19) 2018-09-26 05:53:07 Slp: Initializing rule: Oracle JRE 7 Update 51 (64-bit) or higher is required for Polybase Java

When we click on “View Detailed Report”, we would see below in html page.

I clearly remember this error because I blogged this earlier for SQL Server 2016.

SQL SERVER – 2016 FIX: Install – Rule “Oracle JRE 7 Update 51 (64-bit) or higher is required” failed

When I tried following my own blog, I realized that I was not able to find JRE 7 on the link which I have in my earlier blog.


When I looked at Oracle site, I was not able to find JRE 7.  Here are the steps which worked as of today.

  1. Go to
  2. Scroll little down and look for “Java SE 10.0.2”
  3. On Right Side, you would see few “Download” buttons. Click on one below “JRE”
  4. One next page opens, you can accept the agreement and then download a highlighted file.
  5. Install the executable

After this, I was able to press the “Re-Run” button and proceed with the setup.

Hope this new version of an article would help you in installing SQL Server 2019. Please comment and let me know.
