Thanks everyone. I've learned a great deal by reading your questions and answers. I got a little 'Java Web Start' icon on my desktop when installing J2SE and Forte 3.0, but I did not know how to implement it in any of my projects. But now, I've decided to change my current project to use this technology. I think it's a great addition to Java.

I am having a problem with an applet I wrote´┐Ż
The applet works great on my development machine (obviously), which runs on the NT 4.0 workstation platform. The applet works with the appletviewer, IE 5.0 and Netscape 4.76 on this machine.
I also tested it on my win98se machine. Again, no problems using Netscape 4.07 and IE 5.0
My client then tested the applet on two win98 machines with IE 4.0 & 5.0. They were very satisfied. But, when we put it on the web server some users started complaining that they were getting an 'Applet notinited' error.
I have a user copy, paste and send to me the results of the Java Consol. It is:
Java(TM) Plug-in: Version 1.3.0_01
Using JRE version 1.3.0_01 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = C:\WINNT\Profiles\Administrator.001Proxy Configuration: no proxy----------------------------------------------------

My questions:
1)Why does this happen on some machines and not others? It does not seem to be platform or browser specific.
2)What is the above message really telling me?
3)What if anything can I do to make sure this application works on Java enabled browsers?

Well, I can't help with the 'notinited' issue - I'm having a big problem with that myself (see new posting). But as for as the illegal operation with IE 5.0, there are several trouble tickets with Sun about this. It seems that there is a bug either in the html converter 1.3.0_01 or with the way the plug-in installs with IE 5.0
The work around they have posted is to download the Plug-in and run the install program for it manually (with the browser closed).
