IE6 Java Permission Error
Posted on 2005-05-15
I have a Windows XP/IE6 computer that will not run a java web application correctly. I think it is simply a setting somewhere. The applet is a file download/transfer utility that is supposed to open an explorer-like dialog box. You should then be able to browse your system for a location to save the download.
However, on this one computer, the applet stops with the message "File transfer is not possible due to insufficient permissions or save options"..
I can go to other computers in the office and use the particular web site with no problems. Also, I can run the applet properly from the problem PC if I login as another user. This is what makes me think this is simply a setting tied to the user account.
I've tried several security options within IE6 trying to open up ActiveX and Java permissions. Are there separate Java permissions that can be applied per user? If this were a machine or system-wide setting I shouldn't be able to run the app while signed on as another user.
Would it help to remove and reinstall Java or Microsoft's Virtual Machine?
Thanks in advance.
