      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version " 1.7.0_25 "
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_25-b15)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode)

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Hello,

      I did a clean install of OS X 10.8.4 in a VM (VMware Fusion). After installing the system, I downloaded the JDK 7u25 from the Oracle site and installed Java.

      In Terminal I can run java -version and get the expected result.
      When I try to open the Control Center from the System Preferences, java crashes.
      When I go to java.com to verify I have Java installed, I first get the " disabled plug-in " message, I can enable it but the java applet is not showing up.

      When I try to run ControlPanel from
      /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin

      I get the error message provided in the Error Message field

      I don't have any problems with my 10.8.4 that has been updated from 10.8.3., 10.8.2 etc. This only seems to occur on a fresh install.

      PS: I also notice in a 10.9 (from scratch) installation

      Hope this helps

      Kind regards,

      Alex
