The Microsoft Java Virtual Machine (MS Java VM) handles Java
applets on web pages, compiling and executing them.
Currently Microsoft no longer supports the MS Java VM, and preinstalled machines with Windows XP and Service Pack 1a (SP1a) come without it. Older machines still have the MS Java VM.
The Sun Microsystems Java VM is a replacement for the now obsolete MS Java VM. Instructions on replacing the MS Java VM with the Sun Java VM are as follows:
For Windows NT4 and Windows 2000, replace c:\windows with c:\winnt.
For Windows 95, 98, 98SE and ME, replace c:\windows\system32 with c:\windows\system.
You can now download the Sun Java VM from here:
