View Full Version : Java and IE8 with Win XP

21-03-2011, 12:21 AM
Have IE8 running on Win XP, all updated and running OK.

I have been trying to open a web page, the headings on the page do not appear.
After contacting page designer I am told I need Java applets to make it work.
Installed Java OK but still does not work properly. Just installed Firefox and the page does work properly using that, but not when using IE8.
Any suggestions please about getting it working with IE8.

Upgrade to IE9 or better yet, stick with Firefox.

No IE9 wont run on XP. Did you install the latest version of java, and uninstall all the previous versions? You should only have ONE version of java installed

Yes, JavaSetup6u24.exe

Could find no other versions. Java test said nothing installed.
