I recently downloaded the JDK (Java Development Kit). It came with it's own JRE (Java Runtime Enviroment), so I, in my wisdom, decided to save space by deleting the duplicate kits.

Now my Browsers (IE 5.0x, Opera 5.02, NS6.1) can't find it - esp. NS which used to load it automatically.

I've poked around with the control panel applet, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

I'm currently downloading the <a href="http://bert.fragland.net/md3view/index.html">Q3:A model viewer</a> - a java program that had the original JRE, and I see how that goes.

Here goes...

<b>Update:</b>
I re-installed (overwrote) the JRE via NS6's plugin system so it sorta' works for NS now (see <a href=#ne1>NetScape errors</a> below) but still not IE or Opera.

I found (eventually) IE's java console:
<font color=blue size=+1>
<pre>java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: javax.swing.JApplet

at java/lang/ClassLoader.loadClassInternal

Hey, what the...!
I just went back to NS to get its error reports, and it's asking for the plugin again.
This is messed up.
:confused:
