I just upgraded my java to the newest one avaiable from 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: denied (java.util.PropertyPermission java.version read)

How do I fix this?

    create a file "policy.all" and have this content:
    grant codeBase "file:/-" {

    Then run your PDM by adding this to the java command

    java program_name

    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.
