I have 2 versions of Java on my machine (different sites require different versions), is there a way to set 1 version to open when a sepcific webpage is opened and the 2nd version to open if a different webpage is opened?

You should need only the latest version, which is backwards compatible.

Any specific reason for that requirement?

I would start by uninstalling ALL the J2SE runtimes you find in Add or Remove Programs and reboot.

Now delete the folder C:\Program Files\Java and reboot again.

Download and install the lateste Java JRE 5.0 update 6 from here:

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

Reboot one more time and test. It should be OK with any Java website.

If you would like me to test a website requiring older versions of Java, post it and I will.

FYI, I'm running only 1 version of Java, the one posted above.

   You will not be able to access the websites because they are internal business websites and special configs are required (I do not have the authority to give those out).  One site's program requires Java version 1.3.1_16 and the other 1.4.2_10.

And you tested them and they don't work with the latest version of Java?

See if this helps:

Scroll down to the yellow comments.

But it seems there is no easy switch...

And this may also help (to some extent):

Not really an answer, but the best I could find.
