I tried a simple applet to load into IE 6.0 and Netscape 7.0 on Win-2k platform. Both browsers crash. Can bring up Java Console, but no messages as the browser crashes taking the console with it. Netscape, however, gives an error message dialog showing: could nbot find entry point for _Jvm_SupportsCx8@0 in the JVM.dll file. I upgraded my win-2k with service pack 3 which took 15 mins to do it on T-3 line. Any ideas or suggestions are welcome. thanks a lot. -ranthy.
