    Java for IE8

    -java-cp-jpg
    Hi
    Trying to use the web without Java is like trying to swim with a anchor.
    I have some problems with getting to use pogo games (I've checked their site for help...refer to anchor comment above) and nothing.
    I've gone to Java site and same results. I've done a web search and same results.

    Here is problem.
    I can log into pogo ok and then select game and get the "you need java" msg.
    I have java. Version 6 update 16. I have IE8 on a vista 32bit os.
    Java says to make sure java is enabled for internet explorer in java control panel.
    I go to java control panel, advanced tab, default for java browsers and the entry for microsoft internet explorer is greyed out, but box does show a check mark.

    This doesn't seem normal to me. I should beable to check and uncheck that box.
    I think that java control panel is not seeing IE8, therefore, nada on the pogo.
    see attached screen shot.

    Any aid in resolving this issue will forever earn you warm fuzzy feelings.
    Thanks

    Just a note on what I posted above.
    I have two computers. One is 64bit and one is 32bit. My post does refer to the 32bit os.

    Thanks

    Hi
    Thanks for your reply.
    I went ahead and took a look and I did get one thing to happen that had not before.
    I logged into pogo, clicked on my favorite game (word whomp), saw the java loading and all I got was "welcome to pogo" log in screen again.
    And thats all I could get.
    I suppose thats something. At least it wasn't the Opps no java msg again.

    Oh well.
    Thanks for your help.

    Regards
    Ernest

    Hi Ernest,
    If you like,you could uninstall the current version of Java and remove all traces of it using White Falcon109's method from Programs and the Registry: IE8 installed now java not working

    Then try installing this newer version of Java from here:
    https://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP...-CDS_Developer
    Even though it's a beta version I haven't had any problems. HTH.
