You cannot use System.exit() in an applet.

Try instead loading a different page using showDocument.

Open up your java policy file and grant the following permission:

permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "exitVM";

inside the grant
{
...
...
}

block of code. Tell us if it helps, if it does you will need to sign your applet in order to use it on other computers that you do not have access.

you cannot exit the applet's vm with System.exit().

If you want to close the window then try calling js from your applet using:

netsape.javascript.JSObject window = netscape.javascript.JSObject.getWindow(applet);
window.call("closeWindow", null);

or load a new page using showDocument() that has some onLoad javascript to close the window.

I thought it might worth a try.

vihar123, you might as well call destroy() manually.

>  you cannot exit the applet's vm with System.exit().

So the actual problem is that you cannot exit the applet, not that you cannot call System.exit(0);
