Java App does not work locally with MSIE3

I have a simple Java app that works fine in Netscape 3.x and 4.x.  However when I try to see it in MSIE 3.x I see in the status bar that it is loading without errors, but I only see the grey box wher my app should be.  If I call up this file via my Web server it works with MSIE.  But I can not see the app if I just call up the file from my LAN or local drive.  All my referenced files, including .class and image files are in the same directory.
TIA

Do you use any of the URL classes? I know they won't show in MSIE without a connection. Guess it's a Microsoft problem!Mylène

If you turn on the Java Console in your options menu,
are there any errors showing up?
