Hi all,

I have JDK 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 installed on my computer. Unfortunately I installed JDK 1.5 at the latest, so now I have this problem:
- Firefox and Chrome cannot run applet.
- Internet Explorer can run applet but under JDK 1.5

Is there any way to enable a specific version of Java plugin such as 1.6 or 1.7? I tried to disable browser support in each version of Java plugin but only the 1.5 works.

Please suggest.

Thanks.

Go to Control Panel.

Click on Java.

Click on Java tab.

Click View.

Under User tab, enable and disable your preferred Jre.

Click Ok. Then another Ok.

Restart your browser.

Guy, I know why is that: my JDK 1.6 & 1.7 is 64-bit and JDK 1.5 is 32-bit, but all browsers are 32-bit, so only the JDK 1.5 works.
