Running JNLP on a Win2000 Client

I am testing a web application that hosts a JNLP file. In a Win2000 IE Client, when I click on the link that launchees the jnlp file, browser asks me to Open, Save, or Cancel. I chose open but then the OS asks me the executable to open the jnlp file. then I have to choose javaw.exe just to run the jnlp file.

In a WinXP IE machine, this is not a problem.

Should I set something on the browsers?


I agree. Here's the link:
