I have a signed swing applet that is embedded in a webpage, and it works fine on mine and one of my flatmate's machines but for my other flatmates the applet does not load and is says "load: class myApplet not found" in the status bar. why does this happen? all the machines have the latest java plug in.

It's not enough to just have the latest java plug-in installed. If you have more than one version of the plug-in installed then you must configure the newest version to be the default plug-in. Also there is a handy tool made by sun that will allow you to make the html code more browser friendly for applets. Check out this site.

Copy the class file as well as the HTML file on your other flatmate's machines.

I said that just to check if its a problem with their JVM or not, 'coz if it is, then it might still not display the applet and you can be relaxed about it. Otherwise, it might be something more peculiar.
