        Steps to Reproduce (be specific):

        An old version of our app wants to use JRE 1.4. The JNLP file requests to
        be run with a 1.4 JRE. However, if Java 6.0_15 is installed, the 6.0_15
        version of webstart downloads the application and launches the app with an
        installed version of 1.4. This is evident from:
              Java Web Start 1.6.0_15
              Using JRE version 1.4.2_17-b06 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM

        The error comes from: (which is clearly a Sun class)
        at com.sun.javaws.LaunchDownload.checkSignedResources(Unknown

        Run this with using the webstart in 6.0_12 and it works perfectly.

        appg that does not work has a signed version of the JNLP file (meaning
        that there is a copy of the JNLP file in the main signed jar file). If
        take the JNLP file out of the jar file, it works.
