Does anyone know what the current Applet ClassID code is for JDK 1.4.1_01?
I have found this but wasn't sure it was as current as what I need.
Thanks for any help.

hi Gregg,
i think its a combination of 'classid' and 'codebase' that determines which jre needs to be used/downloaded.
here u 've two choice according to the link you provided.
1. static versioning
2. dynamic versioning
for both of these the classid is specified in the link you provided. once you do this you have to set codebase attribute accordingly as per the link suggests. if u want to force 1.4.1_01 version then use static thing and use codebase value as "codebase="http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/autodl/jinstall-1_4-windows-i586.cab#Version=1,4,1,01" else if u want dynamic versioning and allow all the jre above 1.4.1_01 then use,
"codebase="http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/autodl/jinstall-1_4-windows-i586.cab#Version=1,4,1,0"
if this is what u 've to do then what is the problem?
i am not sure if i understand your problem correctly. did i understand ur problem?

Yes, you understood perfectly. The strange thing is I had my tag set up correctly. And I already had the JRE 1.4.1_01 installed on my PC but it still prompted me to install it again. Once it installed it again, then it works fine.
I just don't understand why it prompted for the download even though I already had it installed. Is there something different about the JRE install from installing the JDK and the JRE seperatly?
