IE 5.0 & Java

Anyone else have trouble getting IE 5.0 to run java applications? My security is set correctly, and I can’t find anything else to change…Very strange!

Some mornings it just doesn’t seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.

I got IE 5.0 and Java runs very slowly and takes a long time to load.

Zette, try going to Tools, then Internet Options… Then click on the Advanced tab, and under “Java VM”, uncheck all the boxes. Tell me if that works or not.

I don’t even have that listed in my options under the advanced tab…Maybe I have a weird version or something??

When I installed IE 5.0, I had to download seperate parts of the browser (Main browser, virtual machine, Media Player, etc.). I think you installed IE 5.0 without the Virtual Machine (java console).

Run the IE5 installer (if you still have it), click on “Minimal or Custom”, then check if you have Virtual Machine installed. If not, download it.

Tell me if that works or not, okay?

Thanks louie- I’ll dig out my CD and check it out (it came preinstalled on my Compaq laptop). I’ll let you know :slight_smile:

Zette, Zette, Zette!

One of life’s important lessons – All software from The Great Satan in Redmond is seriously flawed. Sometimes we have to use it because they’ve choked out all the competition – but no one has to use IE5. Get yourself a copy of Netscape.

Don’t feed the beast.

A few weeks ago I had the same problem, I had to re-download the Java Virtual Machine from the Windows Update web site.

Get over it! I actually prefer this particular version- I’m keepin’ it! :slight_smile:

Sorry, Zette – I got a little carried away on one of my personal crusades. I promise not to raise the controversy regarding “that company in Redmond” vs. “the quality software providers” again.

Well, I visited the update site- there was nothing about java at all…I even searched my Compaq CD…IE5.0 isn’t listed on the CD (it’s one of those bootable “rescue” CD’s). Any other ideas?

Thanks for the advice…I must have been misreading it- I was on the update page looking for “java”…duuuuhhh!
Anyway, I got the virtual machine stuff and it works like a dream. Thanks so very much!

Java belongs to Java corp, not Microsoft.

Microsoft has to make their own version.

But you can always download the real Java seperately at ? or is it & use that I think. When you put it on, it’ll tell you if it works with whatever browser you have, or did for me anyway. As you probably guess, it did not like IE 4.

I thought Java belonged to Sun.

Yes, Java belongs to Sun, I guess. Haven’t checked throughly on that. But then, java belongs to us all.
