Hi , I have two jdks 1.5 and 1.6. When I enable the jdk 1.5 to be active for IE, I can see JRE 1.5 in Java section of advanced tab of IE. However when I launch the app the Java Console opens up but the version is Java Plug-in 1.6.0_06. How do I get the console to be Java Plug-in 1.5 ?
Please advise.

Thanks for your help,
