Signed applet behaving as if it was unsigned

I'm currently testing my signed applet out. It works fine on some machines, but on some it cannot write files to the client's system, throwing a com.ms.security.SecurityExceptionEx .

The problem must stem from the fact that, in these cases, the user is never presented with the 'Do you accept the certificate' question.

Does anyone know how to solve? Problem just seems to be with machines using the Microsoft VM.

Cheers,
James

The "com.ms..." classname indicates that the age-old Microsoft JVM is used. Applets need to be signed in a different way to work on it. This wiki page links to an article describing how to do that.
