Cannot access Oracle E-Business after upgrading to Windows7

Dear experts,
Right now most of our users use Windows XP (IE8) + JInitiator + Oracle E-Business and everything works fine.
However, after some users upgrade to  Windows7, they cannot access Oracle anymore. But the JInitiator is installed without any error.
I googled some information and some one said I should replace the jvm.dll file which is under the folder: C:\Program Files\Oracle\JInitiator x.x.x.xx\bin\hotspot\
Can anyone tell me where can I find the appropriate jvm.dll file in my case? Or any hint is welcome.

    Link given by KCTS mentions support for JInitiator withdrawn. It is quite clear that you need to install Sun Java for it work. The jvm.dll you are talking about seems to be referring the some Virtual Machine file in the installation. In case you are comfortable, try installing Sun Java & see if you get the same issues.

    jvm.dll is a Java Virtual Machine file.
    You can try and reinstall java.

    Thanks guys for your reply.
    I know JInitiator is no longer supported in Windows Vista and Windows 7 from Oracle's statement. However since our server side Oracle APP is still using JInitiater instead of JRE, I need to find other possible solution for our client side using JInitiator connect to Oracle.

    How about an uninstall / reinstall of JInitiator on the Client with the latest version? I read it installs without errors but maybe this time it will add the file you are talking about? Did you try the Compatibilty Mode in Windows 7 ?

    From the above discussion I gather that JInitiator is some sort of VM environment given to IE. Is it installed properly 7 & IE is set to use it? Check the following setting in Internet Options under Advanced Tab & see if JInitiator is detected & set to be used correctly on IE.
