Recently I've been working with an applet that I am forced to require to make Java 2 compliant (it connects to a database the JDBC is java 2).. anyway, it isn't THAT big a deal to provide the little "get java" button and let people install it that way. But on computers that I have tested the process on, installing Sun's JRE doesn't override the MSJVM. Even disabling the JVM in internet options failed on the test.
What is normally done? Is there some easy fix to get the stupid MSJVM to leave the applet's alone? The HTML converter didn't work AT ALL.. any suggestions are appreciated, thanks!

In the Control Panel there's a Java Plug-In icon. Click on it and there's a couple of tabs. Click on "Browser" and check the checkbox for Microsoft IE. That will make the new JRE the default, even with the old <APPLET> tag.

I tried changing the settings in both IE and in the Plug-in control panel.. it still is defaulting to the microsoft vm (on the winME computer, doing it the way you suggest does seem to work in XP). Any other ideas?
