      Description



      Name: gm110360 Date: 05/07/2002


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.3.1_03"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1_03-b03)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1_03-b03, mixed mode)

      FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION : Windows 2000 build 2195,
      service pack 2.


      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      Internet Explorer 5.5, sp2, patch Q316059, VM 3805.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      In the most recent incremental release of the 1.3.1 Plug-in
      (1.3.1_03), installing the Plug-in disables the Microsoft
      VM in IE.

      This happens when NOT selecting the checkbox asking if I
      want to make the Plug-in the default VM for the applet tag
      in IE.


      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 1.3

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Install Plug-in 1.3.1_03 for Windows. Do not check the
      box to make Plug-in default VM for IE.
      2. Launch IE.
      3. Try to load any Java applet. Get nothing but empty
      square with red X.
      4. Open Plug-in control panel, go to Browsers tab, select
      IE, OK. Open control panel again, deselect IE, OK.
      5. Launch IE, load an applet, it loads with MS VM.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      Expected that installing Plug-in would leave IE VM setting
      alone, unless explicitly requested to make Plug-in the VM
      for IE.

      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
      Open Plug-in control panel, select IE checkbox, apply (or
      OK), deselect IE checkbox, apply (or OK). MS VM is now
      operational agan.

      Release Regression From : 1.3.1_02
      The above release value was the last known release where this
      bug was known to work. Since then there has been a regression.
