Hi,

My first advice is to download the JDK installation package once again and repeat the installation again.

There are other means but try this one first.

BR,

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Why not 9?

Why not 9?
According to my experience for that purpose Windows 10 is required.

For sure the choice of JDK depends on the tasks. As an example I've tried to launch NetBeans under JDK 9 and it doesn't work as it should. So I went back to JDK 8.

I've an awful feeling that 9 is the first JDK to break anything. e.g. if you relied on java.ext.dirs before - you're out of luck

Migration sounds so much better than 'breakage' doesn't it? ;)
