Java not opening Cisco PDM

I just upgraded my java to the newest one avaiable from java.com and since then I can not start my PDM for my Cisco Firewall which runs with Java, I get this error message on the bottom of the window:
java.security.AccessControlException:access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission java.version read)

How do I fix this?

Im running Windows XP Pro on a Windows 2003 Domain

create a file "policy.all" and have this content:
grant codeBase "file:/-" {
  permission java.security.AllPermission;
}

Then run your PDM by adding this to the java command -Djava.security.policy=file:/..ful_path_to_the_policy.all

e.g:
java -Djava.security.policy=file:/java-temp/enum/policy.all program_name

Easier to just run it without a security manager
following may provide a good ref: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/security1.2/tour2/index.html

If its an applet follow the following:

Easier yet, Cisco PDM doesnt support the latest version of JRE. Downgrade your JRE runtime to version 1.4.2 and try again. Only know this because I had the exact same issue about a week ago.
