I have just upgraded to XP and IE6 and can't access java chatrooms. This is bad. I have dowloaded the Microsoft service pack and installed it. I have got the new Java Machine thing from Sun. I have changed my security settings. I have tried using other browsers (netscape 4.8 and 7) but all to no avail. When I click to enter the chatroom I just get a blank page or a "couldn't load config file" message. Bollocks. Can anyone help?
Have changed name...ok...when I click on those links I get a blank screen with 1.4.0_01-ea. XP doesn't come with the virtua machine, but I downloaded it with the service pack. I also downloaded the Sun machine. Some Java pages seem to work, but not the ones I need.
I had the same issue. I believe a tech support person had me install an earlier version (1.3.1 JRE?). She said I could have 1.4.1 and 1.3.1 installed at the same time. I have been working like that for months now with no problems. I am using a laptop with W2K. Hope this help or works for you.
