Installing java on IE 9
Posted on 2013-06-27
We are having an issue with java on Internet explorer 9.
We have had this happen several times to different computers and have not been able to find any fix except a complete re-install, which is getting to be a problem.
Internet explorer 10 will be installed on a windows 7 computer that was running IE 9.
Since 10 is not compatible with our web based apps, it has to be removed. After removing IE 10, IE 9 will no longer see any java content. Chrome and firefox will show java as installed and working, but under IE 9 there is no trace of it. We have tried uninstalling java and re-installing it without any luck. We have also tried sfc /scannow, unstalling IE 9 and trying to re-install it again (IE 9 will NOT re-install once removed) without any success. What we need to know is what does IE 10 do to windows 7 to not allow java to run under any other IE version?
Windows 7 SP1
Java = jre1.7.0_17-c ( cannot upgrade as any newer version breaks our apps as well.)
