Java Web Start hangs on XP
Posted on 2007-10-04
I am running Windows XP and tried to launch a Java Web start application. I get the "Java loading" dialog box then it never launches. The webstart app can launch on any other platoform, win2k, win2003, solaris, linux, etc, So I know it is not the application.
So I tried to open up the Java webstart console my going to my JRE installation and executing javaws.exe, and it also does not open. So this is definitely a Java Webstart issue, or my XP environment issue.
Is there a Java Webstart bug on XP that I don't know about? Or is there a XP setting that I need to set?
