      4. Remove 1.3.1_18 and reboot.

      Observe registry problems...

      "MicroVersion"="1"
      "RuntimeLib"="C:\\Program Files\\JavaSoft\\JRE\\1.3.1_17\\bin\\hotspot\\jvm.dll"

      i.e. the platform key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.3] is now missing.


      HKCR

      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501}]

      @="{CAFEEFAC-0013-0001-0018-ABCDEFFEDCBB}"

      i.e. the CLSID still references 1.3.1_18 even though that product has been removed.

      Functionality wise:
      - java -version returns java: not found
      - attempt to load 1.3.1 applet from:
          http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.3.1_01a/demos/applets/Clock/example1.html
        fails
      - Removal of 1.3.1_17 does not function (though I have not reproduced this problem on another win200pro box)
      ./java -version from installed directory and plugin control panel both function.


      Note: I tested 1.3.1_02 over 1.3.1 fcs in same fashion.
      Similar problems
      - attempt to load 1.3.1 applet from:
          http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.3.1_01a/demos/applets/Clock/example1.html
        fails
      - Removal of 1.3.1_02 works
      - HKCR key is left pointing to 1.3.1_02
      - java -version works fine (from any filesystem location) suggesting a minor long time regression.


      Also tested 1.3.1_13 over 1.3.1_12.
      Similar problems except in this case,
      - java -version returns java: not found
      - attempt to load 1.3.1 applet from:
          http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.3.1_01a/demos/applets/Clock/example1.html
        fails
      - removal of 1.3.1_12 works
      - HKCR key is left pointing to 1.3.1_13
