Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031008
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031008

When I embed Mozilla 1.4.1 using the ActiveX control, as soon as I go to a page
with Java applets, a "register failk" message comes up and the program hangs.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clear my system of all JRE's/mozilla installations (manually deleting reg
entries and left over files)

2. Install Mozilla 1.4.1

3. Install the Mozilla ActiveX supplementary files
(http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/gre_app_support14.zip) into the GRE directory

4. Install Sun's 1.4.2 JRE

5. Embed Mozilla in my Java application and navigate to
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/getStarted/index.html
Actual Results:  
A messagebox comes up with "asdas" as the title and "register failk" as the
message. The program hangs.

Expected Results:  
It should render the applets and use the 1.4.2 JRE.



These 2 pages relate to the "register failk" message:
http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?forum=30&thread=432494&tstart=1&trange=15
http://www.billwinkle.org/cdg/failk.html

It seems as though Mozilla is trying to use the Microsoft JVM.

I can view the same applets in 1.4.1 when I'm not embedding it :-/

I've tried downloading the Mozilla Control 1.5 install
(http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/MozillaControl15t1.exe) and
uninstalling/reinstalling all my JREs and versions of mozilla
(including deleting all the registry keys after uninstallation). No
difference.

This is happening on all the development machines (Win2000) I've
tested it on.

BTW - My Java application is not Swing/AWT based.

Oh, something else: If I embed IE instead of Mozilla, it works fine.
