    Hi all,

    Wonder if you can help?? I just downloaded IE7 and now i can't see the java applet on www.soccernights.com/camtable3.htm

    anyone know why? Is IE7 conflicting with Java programs or is does the applet software need re jigging?

    I know this has become a problem for a majority of my website users accessing this page?

    Yet it works fine if i uninstall IE7 and use IE6?

    Any words of wisdom??

    Cheers

    Carl :confused:

    Hi soccernights,

    Welcome to TSG ! :)

    First, make sure, you have the latest version of the Java runtime installed on your computer. Check your version on this site www.java.com
    If the Java runtime is installed, then open Internet Explorer :
    - click 'Tool',
    - click 'Internet Options',
    - select the 'Advanced' tab, a window will open
    - scroll down in the pane until you reach the title 'Java (Sun)' and put a check mark near 'Use JRE 1.6.. for applets ...' then click 'Apply', close the window and restart your browser.

    Yes, I can view it !

    Try this :

    - click the 'Start' button on your desktop,
    - click 'Settings',
    - click 'Panel configuration', a window will open,
    - double click on the 'Java' icon in the pane, a new window will open,
    - select 'Advanced' tab, click on the + sign to expand the line containing the word APPLET (I've an OS in French),
    - put a check mark near the appropriate browser and click 'Apply' to save the change.

    I've browsed many web pages to dig out a solution with no avail : IE7 is still too young.
    Temporarily, there're two solutions : either you go back to IE6 or you switch to a decent browser like Firefox.

    Hi Chicon,

    Thanks for your efforts....the unfortunate thing is so many people have automatic updates and dont know any better, hopefully Microsoft can pull thier finger out and fnd something that works

    I have uninstalled IE7 and gone back to 6. the only thing i can do is advise my customers to do the same.


    again many thanks

    Carl(y)
