Hi all,

I have an application from SAP that requires an old Java plugin, v1.4.2. I have the 1.4.2 JDK installed on my PC for use in a web app I support, but the plugin for the browser(IE7) is from 1.6. I do not want to remove the V6 plugin and always use 1.4.2, but want to switch back and forth from the old plugin to the new one. Is there a way to do this? If not what are my options for using the old plugin? I don't want to deinstall the newer verisions of the JDK!

I can't seem to find any documentation on how to control which version is being used in IE7. (or IE6... for that matter) There is only one version listed in the Options for IE7.

Thanks all,
--Amy Smith

I vaguely remember that the Plugin control panel on Windows allows you to choose which JDK/JRE version it uses. Is that not the case with your installation?

The Settings/Control Panel/Java does not let you change the version of the plugin. It only configures the plugin. I did make some progress.

Change from 1.6 back to 1.4 --> I found C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_15\bin\jpicpl32.exe which is the 1.4.2 control panel. This did allow me to change the plugin version back to 1.4.2. However, sigh..., now there is another issues.

Change from 1.4 back to 1.6 --> The Settings/Contro... still is the 1.6.0_03 version and it does not appear to let me change the plugin back to 1.6.

Thanks for the note.
