Java update 45 just released

As some of you may have noticed, Java has recently released a new update. You may receive a notice while trying to play one of our Java games that looks something like this:

To remove this notice we recommend that you go to http://www.java.com/ and follow the steps shown on the page to download and install the latest version of Java.

Once you have installed and verified that you are running the latest version of Java, you should no longer see the notice above.

 

Some players have made reports of their game stalling on the Play Again screen. Our team has seen cases of this and can confirm that this is due to a Java popup appearing on your computer that needs to be addressed in order to be able to continue your game.

Double check your task bar below and make sure you do not have a Java popup appearing there. Sometimes they may appear behind your web browser.

If you see something that looks like this:

Then you will have to address it to get your game to continue. Click the Allow button and you will be able to continue onto the next game and you won’t see this popup appear again for your entire duration of playing the game in that browser window. If you close the window or refresh the window, you may have to allow Java again to get to be able to continue to the next game.

  • Although I am a paid up member of Club Pogo, all “Club Member Exclusive” Pogo games will no longer load on my computer. Someone please help!

  • Re-installing and or uninstalling Java does not help in the least. Firefox or windows blocks Java. Why should I take a chance then to allow and UNKNOWN to my pc ? Pogo has the responsibility for their servers to run this site properly as it is a paid site. Surely it is illegal to accept money fr a service that does not work. Pogo is still advertising more people to join at a higher cost , is this fair ? Rather close the site totally or fix it. Refunds would be good , thank you.

  • How many times are they gonna tell me to re-install Java when Pogo is the ONLY website which has trouble with this. Sounds like a scam to install Google Chrome. They obviously don’t care about their paying customers. So disappointing.

  • Its bad i down load what you asked POGO now fix your web site and let me play my games that i paid for . i cant even get into any one of theses games .

  • Day 4, was able to play Sweet Tooth 2. Unable to play Word Womp Whackdown and still can’t play Trivial Pursuit. Java has been re-installed and verified working in my PC. WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET THIS FIXED. BEEN PLAYING ON HERE FOR 8 YRS AND EVERY TIME JAVA NEEDS UPDATING, WE GO THRU THIS CRAP. ENOUGH GET IT FIXED.

  • Pogo even deletes the most critical posts, the ones that point to THEIR inability to fix THEIR problem with Java. What does that tell us? They are aware of their failure but certainly not ready to admit it. By now, with all these ongoing problems, ALL of the players should get at least 2 months of free membership. Pogo/EA has no integrity and the worst customer service I have ever experienced.

  • Having trouble also with Java on Firefox. Got it to work going through Chrome as my browser. Maybe it’s just funneling everyone that way. Who knows. Shouldn’t be this hard to do.

  • I can’t get in Scrabble on any of my usernames. What should I do, when I try to play the tiles will not move to the board, please help. Thank you Joann

  • Sorry for everyone, but so glad to see it is not JUST me! I have done everything to no avail. I give up.

  • To date I have uninstalled and installed Java 6 times just today alone and I still cannot play any games that say Play Now. Are there any other so called “solutions” to this? This has gotten old very fast after having had this problem since last week.

  • Will POGO stand up and comment/apologized for the glitch we are experiencing for the last few days i.e since Java’s update. We don’t need to hear POGO blames JAVA or JAVA blame POGO, we need it fixed. We need to know when its expected to be solved. Paying Club members feel free to copy and paste my message until we hear fom them if you agree with me.

  • This is definitely a Pogo problem & I love the fact that they are not responding to it. I’ve tried everything from uninstalling & reinstalling the latest version of Java to clearing the Java & browser cache. All I get is the popup window for the game and eventually an error message that says
    “Your browser couldn’t load this Java game.

    Pogo requires the latest version of Java to be running on your Machine. Please visit Java.com to download the latest version.”

    This has gotten beyond ridiculous.

  • I heard on the news that Microsoft is having problems with their software. Wonder if it might explain some of all our concerns.

  • I too am having problems !! It is SO FRUSTRATING …. And as with many others, it happened after the Java 45 was updated. It’s like some of the games are in slow motion and I click buttons and it stalls. I uninstalled Java and installed it again and same problem. How can this problem be addressed ???

  • I have done everything that Pogo and Java have said to do. I have cleared my cache, installed Java, uninstalled Java, reinstalled Java and have tried it in Firefox and in IE and I cannot play the games. I think this is a Pogo issue and not a Java issue.

  • Yes, I have downloaded the New Java 7/45 & it keep’s popping up asking me if I trust this site,DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ya I do or I wouldn’t have changed it.So what is going on,&I was playing some of the Game’s b-4 I had 2 download the New Version?I’m glad 2 c that I’m not the only 1 with problem’s, I think some-1 @ Pogo had better getting 2 fix these good paying Player’s Game’s or ur going 2 loss alot of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET MY MESSAGE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I checked my plugins and found that Java won’t work on Firefox because Firefox currently has it blocked as not safe with no way to change it. Firefox should let us make that decision. Java and Pogo are working fine on Internet Explorer.

    • DONNA, THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENT. I HAD TRIED EVERYTHING, NOTHING WORKED. AFTER READING WHAT YOU DISCOVERED, I TRIED GOOGLE CROME AND MY JAVA GAMES WORK FINE. SO, IT IS FIREFOX THAT IS THE PROBLEM. THESE COMPUTER PROBLEMS CAN BE SO FRUSTRATING. THANKS AGAIN. IT IS APPRECIATED.

    • i only have firefox and well it was working for me just fine till java came out with this 45 update

  • HI..THIS IS THE FIRST COMMENT I HAVE EVER WRITTEN. I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER FOR MANY YEARS.I AM WRITING BECAUSE THIS JAVA PROBLEM IS VERY BOTHERSOME TO ME. EVER SINCE THE 45 UPDATE I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO PLAY MY JAVA GAMES, JUST AS THE OTHERS. I HAVE UNINSTALLED AND REINSTALLED THE NEW UPDATE. I HAVE UNINSTALLED ALL OTHER EXISTING VERSIONS OF JAVA. MADE SURE THE JAVA IS ENABLED IN MY BROWSER (FIREFOX). I USED “CC CLEANER” TO CLEAN THE REGISTRY. I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. I HOPE POGO THAT WILL GIVE US SOME HELP. THIS IS NO FUN. IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE FUN, RIGHT?

  • Will POGO stand up and comment/apologized for the glitch we are experiencing for the last few days i.e since Java’s update.

  • What in the world have you done with Scrabble? No letters highlighted, slow spins, can’t get out of choose your table by table mode. My favorite game and it is impossible to enjoy anymore.

  • HEY…GUESS WHAT? AFTER LEAVING A COMMENT ABOUT THE JAVA 45 UPDATE AND POGO, I DISCOVERED MY JAVA GAMES PLAY ON GOOGLE CROME. SO, IT IS FIREFOX THAT IS THE PROBLEM. CHECK IT OUT. GOOD LUCK.

  • Just update windows to 8.1.
    Update Java.
    Pogo will not load games prompt about Java.
    What’s going on?

  • I’ll just add my name to the list. Java is current on my machines. Pogo works somewhat on my Windows 7 machine, not at all on my Windows 8 machine. How much longer before you figure out how to provide your customers with the product they pay for? A glitch for a day or so is one thing, but this has been dragging on for days now!

  • since Java 7 update 45 came on I can’t play some of the games I had a computer tech check it and do what all you said do to make it work well it still won’t My membership renews in Nov well if you all can’t fix the problem on your end where games will run with the new update. I will not renew. It cost us way to much money for us to have these problems. We also should be able to use our tokens to but the games we have to use gems to play or either be able to buy gems with our tokens. This web site is getting worse and worse I use to enjoy playing and lots of the players I use to see playing canasta and other games I play are not on now. Wonder why? Its because of problems like these and having to use gems to play games.

  • I have installed and uninstalled and reinstalled Java many times. The games that require Java still do not work. I will be unable to finish the weekly challenges if the problem is not resolved. It says that I have the correct version of Java installed. I then cleared the Java cache and the games still do not work. This has been since the new Java update. With the old versions of Java I could just allow the components and the games would work. Now no Java games are working.

  • This java crud is getting on my nerves. Why do they think everyone is a computer whiz? I tried everything they said and it still doesn’t work and all this computer stuff is over my head. Every year it gets harder and more confusing. And they said computers are supposed to make life easier? I am 64 years old and just want to play my games I PAID my membership for. If I knew it was going to be this much problem, I would not have renewed my membership and if they can’t fix it, then they can kiss my a** and I’m not renewing next year. At my age, I don’t need the stress. We don’t need to hear POGO blames JAVA or JAVA blame POGO, we need it fixed.

  • This is a big problem for me too. I can’t play most of the games I like & play daily…I can’t even get the daily challenges since this started…
    I believe POGO should fix this IMMEDIATELY, as I like many others are paying to play games we can no longer play! It’s just NOT FAIR…I’ve tried everything they said & it still doesn’t work. PLEASE HELP US & FIX THIS PROBLEM!!

  • When oh when will the problems with Java stop? I can’t play Pogo games at all.

  • I’m having a problem playing Dice City Roller, its a Premium Badge and has a time limit I’m not a happy bunny at all. I have tried to solve the problem with no luck, done all the usual stuff clear cache browser etc. I hope some one posts a solution soon.

  • I am unable to play any of the games since updating my Java. I have removed it; replaced it; removed firefox and replaced it. Everything says it is now blocked and Java is a bad site to have. I want to play the games. I could until this all happened over the weekend. I am furious!!!!
