some versions of java stop the adsm, can you revert back to 6.01?

It may be the security settings in the bowser also, what is your response from the browser?

HI Jovart,

Please try it this way:
1) make your tftp server ready;
2) make your asdm file ready in that tftp server;
3) in ASA5510 command line, 'copy tftp disk0', then follow the prompt;
4) done.

here is a quote example:
ASA5510#copy tftp disk0:

Address or name of remote host []?
Source filename []? asa722-k8.bin
Destination filename [asa722-k8.bin]?
Accessing tftp://!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Writing file disk0:/asa722-k8.bin...

ASA5510#show disk0:

!--- Command to set "asa722-k8.bin" as the boot image.

ASA5510(config)# boot system disk0:/asa722-k8.bin

!--- Command to set "asdm-522.bin" as the ASDM image.

ASA5510(config)# asdm image disk0:/asdm-522.bin
ASA5510# write memory
ASA5510# reload

kanlue, should he not check his current version before upgrading?
Not to mention all the upgrade prerequisites also..
There are some changes that need reviewing with verison 7...
