    MS Virtual Machine (IE 6.0)

    I'm missing MS Virtual Mache and can't open a Java-heavy program.
    How do I resolve this problem?

    Eli,

    MSVM is part of WinXp, SP1. If you don't have SP1 installed, you should do it anyway, just for it's updates. ( but also for VM )

    See this link for the MS vs. Sun Micro cat fight. Down at the bottom is also a spot to get VM as a standalone download. <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Viking,
    You stated "MSVM is part of WinXp, SP1".
    It is NOT part of SP1 but SP1a.
    Just thought you would like to know.

    Re: MS Virtual Machine (IE 6.0)

    Sorry Dave but I'm afraid you have that backwards. It was taken out in SP1a Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 813926 Differences Between Windows XP SP1 and Windows XP SP1a

    Windows XP SP1a is the same as Windows XP SP1 except that the Microsoft virtual machine (VM) is removed in SP1a.

    Windows XP SP1a does not include or install the Microsoft VM, which provides support for running Java programs.

    Note If you are running Windows XP or Windows XP SP1 with the Microsoft VM, you can continue to update the Microsoft VM by using Windows Update. If you are running Windows XP without the Microsoft VM, you do not have to install updates to the Microsoft VM. Therefore, these updates are not offered to you when you visit Windows Update. Microsoft is no longer able to provide a download of the Microsoft VM for computers that do not already have the Microsoft VM installed. For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
