      Description

      Downgrade Test *This is NOT A REGRESSION*

      Install Downgrade JRE-English on JDK under test

      Tested on Win 2000 Pro / Win XP Pro

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Install 1.4.0_03 (b3) JDK to default location.
      2. Install 1.3.1_04 JRE to default location.


      Go to Start>Settings>Control Panel

      Choose the 131 Java Plugin

      On the Advanced Tab ->
      Keep JRE to the default java plugin, close any existing browser windows and bring up a new window.
      Go to http://sqesvr.sfbay.sun.com/deployment1/ws/tests/autotests/mimetypes/testcases/Test_13.html for example.
      The applet displays as expected using 131 plugin in control panel with Java Console Shown.
      i.e. it seems to co-exist with 140

      but, when JRE is changed to point to the 140 JRE (on the Advanced Tab of 131 in Control Panel, again), an applet will NOT be displayed.
      An Error is produced:

      ========
      "Java Plugin 1.4 Fatal Error"

      The Java Runtime Environment cannot be loaded from
      <C:\PROGRA~1\Java\J2RE14~1.0_0\bin\hotspot\jvm.dll>

      ========

      To me this is not expected behaviour.
