microsoft jvm

I'm running w2k server sp4
In order to get my browser to work properly with an application - I uninstalled jvm using the following command:
rundll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection java.inf,uninstall

I have a jvm.exe to reinstall but get the error message saying that jvm is a protected system component and can onl be updated with a later release of the OS.

I believe the error is related to the fact that my version of win2k treats jvm as one of it's protected components.

How can I get ms jvm installed?

The Microsoft Java Virtual Machine is not available for download anymore: http://www.microsoft.com/java/.
Officially, at least.
You can try it with the MSJavx86.exe from one of these locations; the file size should be 5.473.872 Bytes.

it's the msoft jvm that's giving me the error message when I try to install it. My research indicates the error is related to the fact that win2k version is either bundled or not bundled with SP3

search with some of the following keywords for a better description
"jvm is a protected system component and can onl be updated with a later release of the OS."

What JVM are you trying to install? The one named "msjavwu" you can download from KB816093? This will only install on a system that has the VM already installed.
Or the one you can obtain from mpsnet.com (which is not the original; this one has over 6MB)? I've had a similar issue with this one and a Win2k SP4 system (a virtual one, luckily) without MSJVM; the message popped up when trying to install the KB816093 after the mpsnet MSJVM.
It worked then with the MSJavx86 from above.

adonis - the above link is broken...at least when you attempt to dwnload

The jvm I'm trying to install is MS VM - ver 5.0.3805.0

The link to kb816093 seems to take me to windows update - I don't seem to have an option to download any VM
