I've installed Java 64-bit on my Windows 7 machine, and have since installed many 64-bit versions of Java-based programs. Now however I have to start using a website using a Java applet, but the 64-bit version of Java doesn't have a browser plugin that works. After searching the web I found two possible solutions:
- Installing both Java 32-bit and 64-bit versions on the same machine. However after trying this I've found that the 32-bit version messes up the 64-bit version in some way (to the extent that the uninstallers didn't even work any more)
- Copying some files from java/bin into my Firefox plugins folder - but all articles I found about this approach refer to files that don't exist in the latest 64-bit version.
Has anyone managed to get the Java browser plugin to run when 64-bit?
