Hi All,

I am facing problems with my signed applet. Despite of being signed the applet is not able to access the access the local files on few system with Windows 2000 Professional OS(SP4). On these systems whenever I run my Applet the "Security Certificate Dilaog" is also not showing up.
If I install the Sun Plugin's then things run absolutely fine and even the Security Certificate shows up.

I am using IE 6.0 but I guess the problem is also coming with other version of IE.
Is anybody else having similar problems and does anyone know why this is happening. I have signed my applet using Verisign.

I have tried to overcome the problem by replacing the java.policy file from systems where the signed cab works fine and the security certificate shows up, but that didn't help. But as far as i know if I am using the signed applet I don;t need to edit or use the policy files.

If anyone can throw some light on this issue and suggest a way out. it would be really kind of him.

Thank you in advance.

You answered your own question. The Microsoft Java Runtime is ancient, equivalent to the JDK version 1.1.4. Their security mechanism has nothing in common with the current implementation.

Hi Joe,

U didn't got my point. I totally agree with u on the issue of why we use Sun's plugin. But the question is that I have identified only a few of these systems. I have Windows 2000 Professional systems with Servcie Pack 4 on which the signed appplet (CAB) worls absolutely fine and even the Security Certificates shows up. But at the same time there are few on which the CAB doesnot work at all. I wanted know as why this is happening on few systems where yhe signed cab in not able to access the local file whereas the same signed applet is able to access local files on other Windows 2000 systems with same config n service pack. Any clues ....

Thank in advance

Hi there,

I think there is no JVM at all in win2000 SP 4.
