Hi everyone, this is my problem...
In my desktop I have installed JRE version 1.4.2 and JRE 1.3.1, I use 1.4.2 to have access to a server and 1.3.1 to a different server. The last version I installed was 1.4.2 so that's the default JRE and it is the only one that uses the explorer, I want to switch from 1.4.2 to 1.3.1, but is hasn't been possible.
I was researching and this is what I have done:
- I changed the environment variable PATH = c:\more_directories;C:\ca_appsw\;C:\tng\services\bin;C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3.1_02\bin (and this is supposed to switch form one to another)
-I modified the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\" to the version 1.3
-I tried to enable the version 1.4.2 from webstart
-I tried to switch it from the java control panel 1.4.2, and form the explorer when I try to acces to the web page, appears an error "c++ runtime, internal error explorer".
-I deinstall an reinstall both versions.
- When I go to command prompt and type "java - version" it says that I'm using the version 1.3.1 BUT when I open the explorer and try to acces to the server it uses 1.4.2, it is still using the default one. I tried to use the "Java web start" application, but nothing.
Do you know any idea what I'm doing wrong, or if there is another procedure that you have tried?, or check if I have to install first one version and then another one, a special procedure...
I would appreciate your help!, Thanks a lot!
