      Description

      After removing JavaFX runtime from the system, Chrome users can not use jre 6ux to load any regular java applet

      *** Tested Configurations:

      - OS: x86 XP, Vista
      - Browser: Chrome latest 13.x
      - jre: 6u27 / 6u28
      - fx runtime: latest fx-b44 promotion


      *** Steps to reproduce:

      0) Use the clean image / or clean up all related java, javafx regkeys on the system
      1) Install 6u27
      2) Install FX runtime-b44 promotion:
      http://jre.us.oracle.com/java/re/javafx/2.0/promoted/all/b44/bundles/windows-i586/javafx-2_0-beta-b44-windows-i586-01_sep_2011.exe
      3) Check that Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.0.255 (version 10.0.1.255) registered with Chrome at
      C:\Program Files\Oracle\JavaFX Runtime 2.0\bin\npDeployJava1.dll

      4) Using Chrome to invoke any regular java applet and it should load fine (using Java Plug-in 10.0.1.255/ JRE 1.6.0_27. Everything is working as expected.
      5) Remove FX Runtime
      6) Check that DT is now registered with Chrome at C:\WINDOWS\System32\npDeployJava1.dll
      7) Chrome no longer recognizes 6u27 plug-in anymore.

      Load the same applet in step #4 and if Chrome reports plug-in missing and the applet does not load, then the issue is reproducible

      The issue does not happen with IE or FF
