Hi,
Now that Microsoft released this new update - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2014/08/06/internet-explorer-begins-blocking-out-of-date-activex-controls.aspx
Even with the latest java installed on the computer we are getting the out-of-date java message when trying to run our web start app.

The launching code is automatically generated on our server (after user login)
And looks like this:
<HTML>
<BODY>
<object
codebase="http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/autodl/jinstall_javaws-1_2-windows-i586.cab"
classid="clsid:5852F5ED-8BF4-11D4-A245-0080C6F74284">
<param
name="app"
value="http://mysite.com/myapp.jnlp">
<param
name="back"
value="true">
<!-- Alternate HTML for browsers which cannot instantiate the object -->
<a href="http://java.sun.com/cgi-bin/javawebstart-platform.sh?">Download Java Web Start</a>
</object>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=./Logged.html">
</HTML>

I suspect this is what is causing the problem.
Could it be?
Isn't there a different way to launch the JNLP?
(All of our users use java 1.6 and higher.)

Thanks
