    Default Java Runtime Environment only works in IE

    Hi all,

    having some issues with the Java runtime environment. With the latest update installed (SE 8.31), the applet does not run in Chrome or Firefox. Only Internet Explorer seems to work.
    It is not a certificate issue as this was just renewed today.

    Does anybody have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Tom

    What does "does not run" mean exactly. You get an error stating that no valid runtime is installed?

    Hi guys, thanks for your replies.

    no messages in the console. When I say it doesn't run, the download tool which runs in the Java RE does not start.

    There are at least a dozen browsers on the market and you say JRE only works in IE. Have you tried them all? I use SeaMonkey (Mozilla product) and update 8.31 works just fine.

    using java pow uploader. Now receiving a general exception for JavaPow Uploader.

    @jim829, unfortunately our clients are using various browsers so we need to have it working on at least the main ones. Chrome, IE, FF, Safari.

    Thanks again for your suggestions.

    Well I hope the people behind the applet have some sort of support line.

    The JVM could not find the class mentioned in the error message. Ask the author of the html page and the jar file it uses about this problem.
