Missing Microsoft VM

Hello,

I am in the deployment phase of Oracle Forms application.
I noticed that one of the Client computers running Win XP Pro (SP2) and Internet Explorer 6.0 is missing the Microsoft VM (Virtual Machine).

I need this to render my signed Applets coming from my Linux server.

1) Is there any way to get this back ?

Understand that because of a court decision Microsoft will stop all Java support and recommends that you use the Sun JRE.

Have you tried installing Sun Java?

Hello,

Yes, I do have Java VM installed.
Under the Advanced tab under Tools - Internet Options, I have the following:

Use Java 2 v1.4.2_06 for <Applet> (requires restart)

I have that check box checked.
On that particular Win XP Pro (SP2) client, I still cannot display a signed Applet coming from my Linux Server. However, on another Win XP Pro (SP2) client where Microsoft VM is installed under the Advanced tab, I can run the signed Applet.

1) How can you explain this ?
2) How can I resolve this difference ?

Try testing that "unfit" PC at this site:

http://www.fitwise.com/testjava.asp

See if tests out OK.

If OK, problem should be applet.

If it doesn't pass, probably local Java VM has problems.

Worth testing.

Hello,

I am not on site at the moment, but I will keep that in mind.

One thing that I have notice with the unfit PC, is that only certain Applets will work and not others. I have read that this could be symptons of an error known as "asdas register failk" error message or the message "JInitiator 1.3 Fatal Error, attachment to a running virtual machine failed".

Reading through, it is mentionned to install the Java JRE 1.4.2, which I have.

1) Why do I still get a blank screen with a RedX at the top left corner, when trying to run my applet on this particular Win XP client.

Paolo,

I honestly don't know the answer to that question.

It will be a trial and error work: test this, try that...

Unless some of the Experts may have knowledge and experience with this specific problem.

One thing worth trying, if you want to, of course, is uninstalling all Sun Java JRE's you may have running in that system.

Download and install the latest version JRE 1.5.0 from here:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp

And maybe this will overcome the problem.

Hello,

Let me just add this information.
I have another Client computer, running Win 98SE.
That client has Internet Explorer 5.0, and it can run my signed Applet coming from my Linux server.

Here are some details under Help - About for Internet Explorer:

IE 5.00.2614.3560 with Q235666 and Q2235667

Hello again,

On the Win XP Pro and the Win 98SE clients that can download the signed Applet correctly, both ask me to RUN a software file named someting like JVMB4.tmp. If I choose to run the file, I can display my applet fine. If I do not nothing happens.

1) What is this temporary file and why does it crash or not load on other browsers ?
