        Description

        J2SE Version (please include all output from java -version flag):
          6u28

        Does this problem occur on J2SE 1.4.x, 1.5 or 6? Yes / No (pick one)
          also with 6u26

        Operating System Configuration Information (be specific):
          Windows 64-bit system
          IE 9

        Bug Description:

          installed the Java 7 Plug-in, both 32 and 64-bit, on 64-bit
        Windows 7 system. That works fine.

          When uninstall both 32 and 64-bit Java 7 Plug-Ins and install
        Java 6 Update 26 or 28 (the only 2 updates have tried),
        again both 32 and 64-bit variations, <applet> tags in 64-bit
        MSIE 9 don't find the Java 6 Plug-In.
        All is well once when move back to Java 7, though.

          The general oddity did block CAP member from testing with 64-bit
        MSIE and no bother testing 32-bit MSIE on my 64-bit system.

          It seems like an <applet> tag wide issue -- as if Java 6 wasn't
        re-registering with MSIE properly after Java 7 was installed.

          Had Java 6 working just fine in MSIE 9 with the same tags and
        don't *think* anything else changed other than installing Java 7.

          Have a policy of having only 1 Java Plug-In version installed
        at a time as have seen too much weirdness over the years
        resulting from multiple Java Plug-In versions being installed
        even though that should work fine.
