How to run ASDM through Java Web Start?

I was not able to run ASDM 6.4(9) through Java Web Start. On the Win7 x64 computer, I already installed JRE 8U25 x64 and found not working. So I uninstalled that version and installed an older version JRE 7U40 x64 and still not working.
Basically for both version of Java, when I tried to run ASDM as a Java Web Application, it gave me the message:

Java Web Start is required to run ASDM, but it is not installed on this computer.

What did I miss? Can you help?

go to control panel, open java console, security tab,
add exception

then restart your browser (i use firefox), and it will now ask if you want to go on a not secure certified website.
you'll obviously respond yes always, and the job is done

hope this helps

Thank you for the quick reply.

But cannot find Java Console. I found in Control Panel, double click "Java", then in Security tab, there is no "Java Console"
That is java console ! Under security tab you should find the exception website list

Installing Cisco ASDM Fails with 'Java Runtime Environment is not installed', ASDM on windows 8

If at all possible Id think about upgrading your ASDM to a newer version as well, newer versions will support newer versions of Java. If possible upgrade to 7.1(5.100) or newer.

Thanks, kellemann!  Your suggestion worked for me!  :)
Sad I didn't get the points then. Oh, well, glad to hear it worked ;-)
