Sorry, that "Yes" was to your original question...

And it would probably take over from your 1.3 installation...

Ideally, you should have only one of them. If you want to install 1.4, I would recommend uninstallation of 1.4.

they should both co-exist if you need both. Otherwise unininstall 1.3.
The 1.3 and 1.4 plugins however do not co-exist that well.

Hi,

JDK 1.4 runs fine on Windows ME(and 98, 2000, and XP). However, the presence of JBuilder and 1.3 may cause complications.
