SYMPTOMS

Microsoft Virtual Machine for Java

32-bit Platform: The Microsoft virtual machine (Microsoft VM) is now only available as a Web download. The latest 32-bit edition of the Microsoft VM can be obtained at the Microsoft Web site. If you do not already have a virtual machine on your system and visit a Web site with a Java applet, Internet Explorer will automatically ask if you wish to install the Microsoft VM.

64-bit Platform: The Microsoft virtual machine (Microsoft VM) is now only available as a Web download for customers who wish to run the 32-bit Microsoft VM under WOW64 on Windows XP 64-Bit Edition. The latest 32-bit edition of the Microsoft VM can be obtained at the Microsoft Web site. If you do not already have a virtual machine on your system and visit a Web site with a Java applet, Internet Explorer will automatically ask if you wish to install the Microsoft VM (IE running under WOW64). This is a one-time installation. Note that Microsoft does not produce a 64-bit native Microsoft virtual machine.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
