When viewing someone else's webpage containing an applet, how can I force Internet Explorer 6.0 to use a a particular JRE when I have several installed?
Force Internet Explorer to use a specific Java Runtime Environment install?
You can specify the family of JRE to be used. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/family-clsid-140615.html
As has been mentioned here for JRE6 and JRE5, I will update for JRE1.4:
You will need to run the jpicpl32.exe application in the jre/bin directory of your java installation (e.g. c:\java\jdk1.4.2_07\jre\bin\jpicpl32.exe).
This is an earlier version of the application mentioned in Daniel Cassidy's post.
I have the same issue today and I concur with Jack Leow. Basically, on Windows XP, I had to go to Control Panel > Java and then:
- Java tab
- Click on "View" button
- Enable only the JRE I want (i.e. JRE 1.5.x and keep 1.6.x disabled)
- Restart IE
- Load applet page in IE
- Et voila, it's loading the correct JRE version!
