Hi,

I been working in Java Web Start for sometime now i am facing the following issue, while automatic download of java is being carried out while installation the tool.

Issue:

"This installation package could not be opened. Verify the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows installer package."

Following is the .html file which i had being using to auto download java 1_4_2_08 this has been working fine for more than 2 years now in Sun Solaris 9.0 and windows.

<HTML>
<BODY>
<OBJECT CODEBASE="http://java.sun.com/update/1.4.2/jinstall-1_4_2_08-windows-i586.cab"
CLASSID="clsid:5852F5ED-8BF4-11D4-A245-0080C6F74284" HEIGHT=0 WIDTH=0>
<PARAM NAME="app" VALUE="http://1.111.111.111:1000/abs/apps/abs.jnlp">
<PARAM NAME="back" VALUE="true">
</OBJECT>

</HTML>

I went thru other forums on this topic i havent got any clue on this topic.

Manual download just works fine on any java package.

Can any one let me know how do i go ahead about solving this issue!

Just wanted to add another note that i am not able to auto download for any 1.4.2 version!. My appln requires 1.4.2specifically so i am trying it only for this version

Do you think is there any firewall/network issues?

Can there be any chances that windows OS has any updates that doesnt allow me to download?

Is Auto download working fine for other versions/ 1.4.2 ?

This has become a very critical issue for me as this has been working fine for few years now.

Looking forward for few ideas and a solution

Best Regards,
