      Description

      SYNOPSIS:
      SSV security warning dialog not displayed on Windows Vista

      OPERATING SYSTEM
      Windows Vista

      FULL JDK VERSION(S):
      java version "1.6.0_02"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_02-b06)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_02-b06, mixed mode, sharing)

      PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:

      Launching an unsigned jnlp application that requires an older JRE version with SSV enabled does not display a security warning dialog
      to the user when the older JRE is not installed.

      When the older JRE is installed it displays the security warning dialog.


      STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
      1. Install the above mentioned build (build 1.6.0_02-b06)
      2. Make sure 1.4 jre is not installed.
      3. Launch an unsigned jnlp application that requires 1.4 JRE version
         with SSV enabled. (SSV is enabled by default).
      4. Execute the below command to launch webstart
      >> javaws jnlpfile

      Observation : Does not display the SSV security warning dialog in windows Vista. The warning dialog is displayed on windows xp.

      Example Jnlpfile : (Modify the location and jnlp/jar file name accordingly)
