Internet Explorer always using the latest jre installed.

Hi I have an applet that uses static versioning so the user must have 1.4.2_03 jre installed. If not it will be downloaded.

<OBJECT classid="clsid:CAFEEFAC-0014-0002-0003-ABCDEFFEDCBA"

However if the user has 1.4.2_03 and 1.5.x the applet uses 1.5.x even though the object tag uses the above classid for 1.4.2_03.

It seems Internet Explorer will always use the latest jre installed. The Java Console in IE shows:

Java Plug-in 1.5.0_09
Using JRE version 1.5.0_09 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM

Is this the case?? What if my applet code doesn't work with 1.5

Why would code that is working with 1.4 not work with 5.0? By relying on a bug in 1.4? Or by being hit with a new bug in 5.0?

5.0 has been out for years. I would suggest to qualify your application for 5.0 if you haven't done so yet.
