Multiple Java instances in Internet Explorer 6

Hi

How can I setup two shortcuts/batch files which each launch an instance of Internet Explorer with a different version of Java enabled, for two web-based java applications that need to be run alongside each other but have different Java client requirements. Running the latest version for both has made the first application cosmetically impossible to use.

Thanks

Is the problem running 2 diff versions of Java or writing the batch file? Or both?

Turns out one of the apps will run in Microsoft JVM in IE6 which is the user's standard browser. I wrote a small launcher app to modify the registry keys which control Java browser integration and then launch iexplore.exe to the login screen of the correct app. Both seem to co-exist happily, one using the Microsoft JVM and one using Sun JRE 1.6_11.
