I just installed Cisco SDM in windows vista and running Java 6 update 13 build 1.6.0_13-b03. I have checked in Internet Explorer to allow active x to run fom my computer. When i try to launch SDM it hangs on the Launch page and goes no further.

Have you told Explorer to allow active to run files on the local machine?

Also, have you considered a virtual machine?

Downgrade to 1.6.0_6 or earlier.  It's a known issue.

Just to be clear, Vista didn't break SDM 2.5, Java 6 did. Look in Sun's archives (http://java.sun.com/products/archive/) for the latest 5 release (1.4.x doesn't display menus correctly). No worries! Just make sure you uninstall any recent Java installs first.
