Accessing Cisco PIX 501 GUI w/Windows 7, IE 9 and old version of Java

i have always had an older win XP pc around with an older java 5 runtime, and IE 7 or 8 and could accessthe cisco pix 501 gui
now i have several field techs with windows 7 and the latest IE browser and cannot access the gui
i use SSH (putty) for real config work but alsways liked that we could see the gui for quick views and minor config changes
does anyone know a way to accomplish this?
all help is greatly appreciated

You are stuck! the PDM is not forwards browser compatible, sorry

Although you can't use IE on Windows7, you can use other browsers.

When I have to run PDM, I use Netscape Navigator on Windows 7, however Java is the biggest hurdle, and you may need to uninstall the current Java version and install a (significantly) older version, such as 1.22
