    With the evaluation copy of 8.1 the java app I used to connect to operate the building I work at remotely, worked fine. With the final 8.1 install, I can no longer run the app. I noticed Internet Explorer 11 (which worked with my java app) was also updated. As I can't seem to install the older version, I'm wondering if the IE 11 update is what broke the java app or the 8.1 final update. Any Ideas?

    Have you tried using a different browser?

    The app will only run with IE. It's not compatible with other browsers.

    Have you contacted Java directly?

    Not yet. The java version the app uses is 1.5.0_11. I don't think i'll get much help from them.

    Is there an alternative app you can use to meet your needs?

    Unfortunately nothing else will work. I'm currently using Team Viewer to connect to my desktop PC at home to make the connection. It's running Win 7. I'll keep trying and report back with success or failure. Thanks
