Now that XP Service Pack 1A has been installed and we are using the Sun JVM with Internet Explorer instead of the Microsoft JVM, my Java applets not running. The way they used to work was that the menu page would invoke the HTML page that started the applet. Then the HTML page would revert back to the regular menu page, while the applet would continue to function until the user closed it down. Users would start and run several different Java applets in this manner. Now, when the HTML page reverts back to the regular menu page -- which is almost instantaneous -- the Java applet is killed. So, the user barely sees it and doesn't get to work with it. Does anyone know of a way to resolve this problem without leaving the child HTML page still open? I'd rather not have a solution that involves having several frames.
