Hi All: I am running my applet based application on Windows 2000. Trying to achieve the following: > Server side of the application uses jdk1.3.1_07. Hence I want the users to stick to the same JVM on client as well to avoid any incomprehensible problems. > Added Object tag with static classid. The code looks like this: < OBJECT ID="someObject" CLASSID="clsid:CAFEEFAC-0013-0001-0007-ABCDEFFEDCBA" width="100%" height="0" codebase="http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.3.1/jinstall-131-win32.cab#Version=1,3,1,7" > < PARAM name="TYPE" value="application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.3.1_07" > This should force client to download plugin ver 1.3.1_07 if there not one installed. Instead this code sometime cause my borwser to crash. At other times, it just download jre1.3.1 and does that on every visit to the page. Should not repeat the download. What I am doing wrong? I have spent hrs trying to figure out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Y
I'm not sure about the crashing part, but you will download 1.3.1 again everytime if the client uses a different version between visits to your page, whether that version is lower (1.3.1) or higher (1.4).

Marylyn, Thanks for you response. My requirement is that client should download a specific version (1.3.1_04) even if a later version is installed. I have got it working though. I guess the class id was not correct. When I generated the code with htmlconverter (Sun) using jre 1.3.1_04, it worked fine. Thanks, Y
