Rule “Oracle JRE 7 Update 51 (64-bit) or higher is required for Polybase” failed

In this article, we will are going to see how we can fix the error Rule “Oracle JRE 7 Update 51 (64-bit) or higher is required for Polybase” failed. You may get this error when you try to install SQL Server. I was trying to install SQL Server 2016 Release Candidate 1, and I got this error during installation. The complete error is like this Rule Check Result, Rule “Oracle JRE 7 Update 51 (64-bit) or higher is required for Polybase” failed. This computer does not have the Oracle Java SE Runtime Environment Version 7 Update 51 (64-bit) or higher installed. The Oracle Java SE Runtime Environment is software provided by a third party. Microsoft grants you no rights for such third-party software. You are responsible for and must separately locate, read and accept applicable third-party license terms. I have fixed this issue, and here I am going to share with you how you can also fix this error. I hope you will like this.

Background

As you all know, Microsoft has already released SQL Server 2018 RC Version 1. So I wanted to give a try, and I decided to install the same. But at a stage in installation, I got an error which was not allowing me to continue further. I started to scratch my head. And finally, I could find the solution. Here, we will see that.

Fix to Rule “Oracle JRE 7 Update 51 (64-bit) or Higher is Required for Polybase” Failed

Once you have started the installation, you can see a window as follows:

Installation Center SQL Server Start

Installation Center SQL Server Start

If you have not installed SQL Server yet, you must select “New SQL Server stand-alone installation”, or you can upgrade by selecting “Upgrade from a previous version”. So we have started installing the things. When you are steps away to finish everything once you have selected the features to add. You will be getting the error as follows:

As it is mentioned in the link provided in the link, you can always download and install the Java SE from that link. This link will be redirected to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html.

Now we have another option to disable the Java SE from the features selected. For that, go back to the feature selection.

Feature Selection Installation Center SQL Server

Feature Selection Installation Center SQL Server

Now uncheck the selection PolyBase query service for external data.

Feature Selection Installation Center SQL Server Uncheck Polybase Query Service

Feature Selection Installation Center SQL Server Uncheck Polybase Query Service

Now you can go ahead and click next. At last, you will get the success message.

Installation Center SQL Server Success

Hooray, we have successfully installed our new version of SQL Server. That’s fantastic right? Happy coding.
