Microsoft Java Virtual Machine 5.00 3809

  Durko 12:42 21 Jul 2005

Cut a long story short, doing a learndirect course online and all neccessary plugin players are installed from their CD.

Only thing is the course is only supported by MSJVM 5.00.3809 but on investigation it seems I have MSJVM 5.00.3810 version on my pc. This seems to be the only barrier preventing access to online learning.

Is it possible/advisable to download
MSJVM 5.00.3809?

I'm running Win XP Home with SP2 instaled if it's any help.

Advice would be greatly appreciated.

The Microsoft Java Virtual Machine isnt actually used anymore in Windows since they have been told not to supply it with WinXP CD's...

Instead click here: click here

...and download the original Sun Java Virtual Machine that will run your java applets and programs...

Followed your advice downloaded the link but still unable to initiate the learning screen etc !!

What would happen if I downloaded MSJVM 5.00.3809?

Before downloading the links you've kindly directed me to, do I need to remove the
MSJVM 5.00.3810 version first and, if so, how do I completely remove it from my system?

Yes, I would uninstall the later version first click here

Here's a couple of threads from a while back about Learn Direct problems, might be worth a look...alB
