Problems when initiating applet for jre1.4.2 when jre1.5 is on the client

Hi all,
as my header tries to say, I have an applet that is compiled with java1.4.2_09 and I have run the htmlconverter to get a correct calling for the applet.
Everything is OK when jre1.5 is not on the client, when it calls the right JRE. But if jre1.5 is installed it doesn't use what the <object> tag says. The applet starts alright but it throws an exception later on, when it uses jre1.5.

Does anyone know how I make sure that the applet use jre1.4.2_09 even if jre1.5 is installed?

Calling of applet (converted wiht Htmlconverter).

In the Java Plugin control panel you can choose which JVM to use.

What execption are you seeing?

Hi,
The exception I'll get is Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-2" java.lang.StackOverflowError

And when I try to set to another JRE in the Java Plugin Control, only the jre for 1.5 is listed, not the older version prior to jre1.5!

Any idea what I can do?

BR, Emil Karlsson
