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

<PARAM NAME="app" VALUE="http://220.127.116.11:1000/abs/apps/abs.jnlp">
<PARAM NAME="back" VALUE="true">
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
It is sorta covered in the
