[java] Am I paranoid or is MSIE screwing me

Recommended Posts

I tried to install the 1.3.1_01a jre just for kicks last night and now I can''t even view applets of any kind. After the install it complained about 1.3.1 plugin and how a registry key is missing or bad. I then erased any mention of the plugin from the registry and reinstalled the _01a jre. It still complained that I was missing a key. I then dl''ed the older 1.3.1 jre and installed it to repair the key. Applets didn''t work at all then. I had to deactivate applets in IE in order to fix the situation. I then got both jre''s installed and turned applets back on in IE. Only problem is that applets won''t turn back on. THe box is checked only every applet says Java is disabled. Any ideas on what the deal is?

Hey, GKW!

I''m sorry. I won''t be able to help you. I just wanted to let you know that I am having the same problem. I''m using 1.3.1, and I can''t run any applets in Internet Explorer 5.

My applets run in my IDE, and on other people''s computers. But I haven''t been able to get them running on my machine. What a pain in the neck, huh?

Good luck! I hope you get it worked out.

Hmmm, weird. Why don''t you guys try to reinstall IE? Most of the time it works(not always).

I uninstalled both plugins last night and applets turned back on again. Does anyone out there have the new 1.3.1_01a plugin working after they had a previous plugin installed? If so did you uninstall the previous plugin before installing the new plugin?

it works just dandy here, so have you installed all service packs and stuff? and perhaps you should upgrade to atleast 5.5, if not 6.

I''ve actually had a problem similar to that anytime I tried running file from the command line. It would give an error to me about a registry key being missing.
I fixed it by searching my system for all Java.exe and javac.exe files. I renamed all of them to .bak files except the ones in my jdk folder that was pointed to by my environment variables. Then everything worked fine.
You''ll find several copies on your system. Including in your windows folder and in the folder for your IDE as well.

Let me know if this helps.

I will give that a when I get home from work. I am running IE6 on w2ksp2. Other than the occasional crash for unknown reasons I have been pretty happy with IE6. I love the cookie management. I installed 1.3.1_01a on a win98se machine and had no problems but that was after, yet another, reinstall of 98se.

I finally said forget you clown. Maybe when 1.4 gets out of beta I will give it a go again. The html converter works just fine what I wanted to try was 1.3.1_01a''s ability to run applet tags.
