Hi,

I have a windows 7 64 bit PC and my legacy applet can only run on 32 bit JRE.
The PC has both IE 8 64 and 32 bit versions. I installed JRE 1.6 update 45 (previously 29 as well). There is no 64 bit version of JRE on the PC or any other browser installed.
As soon as I open the available test vm link to check if JRE is running or not on IE 8 32 bit, it crashes.
Unable to find the root cause for it or logs for it. I cannot have Java 7 due to applet compatibility issues and also have to stick to IE 8.

Any ideas on how else to get it running for my legacy applet?

Thanks,
Ravi

Issue resolved: Right click and open the browser as administrator which will now run the applets.
