      Description



      Name: gm110360 Date: 08/19/2002


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.4.1-beta"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1-
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.1-beta-b14, mixed mode)

      FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Versjon 5.1.2600]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      On a clean install of windows XP if you install the JDK
      1.4.1 -beta version of the sdk, the plugin for Internet
      Explorer 6 will not activate.
      how to verify:
      after installing the full JDK go to controllpanel - java
      and try to activate the plugin in the java "console" an
      error saying that the operation did not work - and that you
      shold check if you have file access to the system. Bare in
      mind that all the operations described in this bug report is
      done ass Administrator (root).

      Solution:
      If you go a java enabled site Win Xp will you if you want
      java installed - click yes

      you get redirected to a MS site which lets you know that the
      automatic download of MS Java Vm has stoped. (but it
      downloads some info for the windows update feature so the
      next time you run update on win xp you can download MS java WM)

      Ok download the MS java vm - after the ms vm is installed
      you can enter the java enabled site and java is activated
      and working with IE 6.

      Now go back to the java Console via controlpanel - Java ...
      Activate Suns's Java Plugin by checking the appropriate "box"

      And finally now you have the the Suns Jre 1.4.1 beta plugin
      installed on your Windows XP bok


      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 1.4

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1.clean win xp install
      2.install jdk 1.4.1 beta
      3.try to activate plugin via java console
      4. install MS Java vm
      5. Now you can activate the Sun Microsystem plugin via the
      java configuration console

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
