Multiple JRE download login in Windows7 IE8
Posted on 2011-02-27
Have Java applet application which is currently running in WinXP(IE6) without any issue. The recommended JRE for my application is JRE1.4.2_07.
Recently we have upgraded OS from XP(IE6) to Win7(IE8). The system came up with Java Plug in which contains both JRE (JRE1.4.2 & JRE1.6).
When we launch our application in IE, it always picks up the JRE1.6 to load which ends up having problem for my application to run in JRE1.6. Hence we have changed classid tag in Object Tag in such away to force IE to picks up JRE1.4.2. This fix is working only when we "uncheck" the Next generation Plug-in in Java control panel.
Now the problem is for some of the Win2K userid, the fix is working fine. It means when we launch the application, IE picks up JRE1.4.2 with Java-plungin warning message.
But for some of the other Win2K userid's, it shows Java Security warning message and endsup loading both JRE1.6 & JRE1.4.2 which kills my application. . Not sure why for some Win2k userid the "java security warning" appears but for some userids "Java Plug-in warning" message appears.
Anybody having the solution for the above problem ? Please assist ASAP.
