Yes, Java isn't implemented in IE6, so you have to download the java virtual machine manually.

Try these


a) Try disabling any firewall or pop-up blocker

b) Check to see if you had enabled java going to tools --> internet options --> Security and then custom level

c) go to tools --> Internet options --> advanced and scroll down to JVM and enable all the 3 options

d) You may want to reinstall the Java virtual machine again downloading the latest

Hai,
 
    First Check JVM is Installed in the machine.To Check use the following steps,

Click start and select run. In the run box enter 'cmd' (without quotes).
Now type in 'jview'

If no Microsoft JVM is installed on the system similar text to the following will be returned

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Joe>jview
'jview' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

If the following information is returned there is a copy of the Microsoft JVM installed, the version of which is the last 4 numbers on the '
Microsoft (R) Command-line Loader for Java' line.

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Joe>jview

Microsoft (R) Command-line Loader for Java Version 5.00.3810
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1996-2000. All rights reserved.

Usage: JView [options] <classname> [arguments]

Options:
/? displays usage text
/cp <classpath> set class path
/cp:p <path> prepend path to class path
/cp:a <path> append path to class path
/n <namespace> namespace in which to run
/p pauses before terminating if an error occurs
/v verify all classes
/d:<name>=<value> define system property
/a execute AppletViewer
/vst print verbose stack traces (requires debug classes)
/prof[:options] enable profiling (/prof:? for help)

Classname:
.CLASS file to be executed.

Arguments:
command-line arguments to be passed on to the class file

If no JVM is present Install the following items

(i)JVM (Can be Downloaded from http://www.mvps.org/inetexplorer/msjavx86.exe)
(ii)Sun Microsystems Java Runtime(Can be downloaded from http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_automatic.jsp)

Then Install Java and it should work fine.

If you have Installed SP-1 then JVM will be automatically Installed.

Hope this helps.
