The current plan with the Cassandra developer is: the 3.11.2 release will support Java 8u161+. You can find additional information about this issue here.


When trying to install the new KFF (AccessData Cassandra service) for AD Lab/AD Enterprise/FTK version 6.3, you get an error message:

“Java Version not sufficient – Please install a 64-bit Java that is Java 8 or higher”





Install the 64-bit version of Java 8 named "Java SE Runtime Environment 8u151".

Please download "jre-8u151-windows-x64.exe" and run the EXE to install Java 8, 64-bit. 

Below is a link to the download page. At the download page, please retrieve the "Windows x64 Offline" version installer named "jre-8u151-windows-x64.exe"

Java SE 8 Run-Time Environment Download Page

Alternatively, you can download the bundle directly from here.



The 64 bit version of Java 8, Java SE Runtime Environment 8u151, is required for Cassandra to work. Higher versions (8u161+) are currently not supported.

    Installing Version 8 Update 151 Release date October 17, 2017 did not work for me. Installing ire-8u-152-windows-x64.exe from the link supplied by Jim Copeland works fine
