Dear Ranchers,

We have the problem that we want to start a Java application with Java Webstart, but do not want to always use the highest version of Java installed.
The application should use Java 1.6*. According to the documentation of http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/javaws/developersguide/syntax.html this should be possible (Search for the j2se tag).

Now we have a PC with Java 1.7 and 1.6 installed. We cannot run the application with 1.6 We tried various several variant of how to specifiy the VM (1.6, 1.6*, 1.6.0_39),
but the application is started with Java 7 or we get an error 'Could not create the Java virtual machine.'

Did any one faced the same issue. Any help is appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Regards,
Srinivasan Thoyyeti.
