    Hi Les--

    You can scan for it here because they discontinued their freestanding download site. They are going to discontinue all support and security updates on January 2004. I'm not sure of the reason for your Java Freeze--you can search it google groups, but I'd just uninstall it and use MVM while you can and migrate, or uninstall it and try to reinstall the appropriate version of Java VM you need with the links below:

    Find Windows Updates: Microsoft Virtual Machine for ME/2000, XP Through Windows Update

    Microsoft Virtual Machine and Sun Java Virtual Machine Download Links Available Here at www.java-virtual-machine.net/download.htm

    VM Context and Some Legal Background

    Sun and MS were involved in lengthy litigation that is still ongoing, with the latest decision in the Fourth Circuit. In short, there was an a settlement with Sun in 2001 that after Jan. 1, 2004 MS could no longer support the a MS VM. MS no longer includes it nor do they include Microsoft Visual J++. The Baltimore Division District Court of Maryland issued an order for MS to distribut Java Runtime environment with XP Operating Systems. MS appealed, and secured a stay of the order from the Fourth Circuit now in effect.

    MS advises that if you are a user who deploys it in your environment or develops software using the MS VM, ot migrate before 2004.

    I'll look for the post, but could you please paste all of the errors you're getting with this. It will help a lot and I appreciate your including the OS with IE. It makes a difference and sometimes a critical one in problem solving to know the OS and 70% of the time you don't get it on this portion of the lounge.

    Thanks,

    Les--

    FWIW--

    Microsoft has announced (yesterday) that it will carry Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Java programming language in the Windows operating system nine months longer than first planned, to give customers more time to transition between the software platforms.

    Originally, Microsoft had said it would only carry Java in Windows until the end of 2003, under an agreement that allows programs written in the Java programming language to run on top of Windows. Microsoft and Sun said in a joint statement that they would extend that by 10 months to Sept. 30, 2004.

    One of the main issues concerning customers and software vendors is the ability to preserve software security during the transition so that hackers won't get a chance to exploit software flaws.

    Microsoft has a webcast that might help with JVM/MVM issues:

    It sounds as though regular users only have one choice if they want to continue to take advantage of Java-enabled sites:

    "Microsoft has identified steps that developers, IT professionals, and businesses can take in order to make the transition and migration as convenient as possible:

    <UL><LI>Start work now to understand your Microsoft VM dependency
    <LI>Decide on your transition and migration path, which may include:
    <UL><LI>Migrating to other rendering technologies such as DHTML, Macromedia Flash, ASP.NET, or others
    <LI>Migrate Microsoft Visual J++
