Don't bother with the Microsoft VM as it only has a limited shelf life. Download from the Sun site. This is what Microsoft's VM is based on anyway.

In my opinion, (having tried both), the Microsoft Virtual Machine works better, on more sites, than the Sun Java version.

I have now only the MS version installed and never have any problems with Java sites.

As regards limited shelf life for MS-VM; well I will cross that bridge when I come to it, and start to have problems.

Another source for the last build of Microsoft Virtual Machine is here:
