Java and IE8

#1
Hey guys,

I've read around trying to find a reason for this issue, but so far came up with nothing - so here is my dilemma :(

I have Windows 7 64-bit. I have tried both IE8 64-bit and IE8 32-bit and (even thought I have both versions of Java installed), IE will not run any applets.

I see the java graphic spinning it's wheels, but nothing ever happens. I always get an error similar to this:

load: class blox.class not found.
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: blox.class

Exception: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: blox.class



It depends upon the applet, which class is not found... for example, on a Barracuda Networks VPN applet, I would get:

load: class com.sslexplorer.agent.client.launcher.AgentLauncher not found.
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.sslexplorer.agent.client.launcher.AgentLauncher


These messages pop up in the Java Control panel when I click on where the applet should be running and look at the details of the message.

I have Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit (latest download as of 2 days ago)


Thanks for any help you can give :)


BTW - I tried loading Firefox (latest version AND latest nightly build). I tried loading Google Chrome also. Neither will connect to the internet at all. They run just fine, but can't browse :( I tried the Google Chrome 'switch' ( --in-process-plugins) and still nothing.

So - java applets may run on those.... but there is no way for me to test it at this point.
