Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working

    Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working

    I received the following pop-up from Windows last night:

    Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working

    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
    Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is
    available.

    I can't find anything about this on the MS or Sun sites, so I have to assume
    it's either rare or new. Does anyone know what it means? From the message
    text I assume it means that windows was terminating the JVM.

    This is a new Dell M90, 2.33GHz Core Duo, 2G memory, with Vista Business
    version 6.0.6000.

    The java version is:

    java version "1.6.0-oem"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-oem-b104)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-oem-b104, mixed mode)

    I teach J2EE classes online, so this is potentially a major problem. There
    were no Java apps running, and I have yet to install any IDEs or application
    servers. I did have some problems the preceding day with the Sun Secure
    Global Desktop 4.20.909 (could not get to login dialog under IE7 or FireFox).

    Try 1.6.0-b105 which you can obtain in this way:
    http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
    Scroll down to Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 and click download.
    Accept the License Agreement. Check the second Windows selection.
    Sun isn't allowing you to avoid using their download manager, so click
    the orange bar. Tell the download manager where to dump the small file.
    Click the small file. Permit it to download and install 1.6.0-b105.

    Before installing the latest Sun Java delete the version that came with your
    computer.

    I've run both 1.6 and 1.7 on Vista, so there should not be any inherent
    problem with Java on Vista. Even Microsoft's old Java VM runs on a clean
    install of Vista.

    Re: Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working

    Thanks, guys. I need to research this a bit more first, though. For example,
    I deliver some classes that require the use of the 1.4.2 and 1.5 JDKs (with
    JAVA_HOME set appropriately). I'll also be running JBoss, WLS, etc,, with
    their preferred settings. Can I expect any issues with these if the 1.6 (or
    1.7) JRE is installed?

    I'm also interested in understanding why Vista thought the runtime wasn't
    "working correctly" and needed to be closed. If I get any info from the Java
    forums I'll post it back here.

    I've even run Sun Java 1.1 on Vista. There shouldn't be a problem with old
    versions, but it sounds like there was a problem with the particular
    installation.

    RE: Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working

    I've made some progress on this. I suspect the Sun SGD 4.2.909 testing
    probably caused the original problem.

    It appears that what Windows was actually reporting via "the program will be
    closed" dialog was that it was disabling the Java 1.6 plugin in IE7. When I
    checked in Manage Add-Ins to see what version of the plugin showed up there,
    I saw that the "Java 1.6 Console" was listed but disabled, and the Java
    plugin I'd expected to see wasn't listed at all. Once I re-enabled the
    console and restarted IE7, "Java(TM) Platform SE environment 6" showed up,
    too, and was also enabled.

    So, it's not a JVM being killed, just the IE7 plugin, so that probably
    wouldn't affect a running JBoss instance. I can probably live with that, and
    at least proceed with other installs and testing.

    FWIW, I have reinstalled the 1.6 JRE with the latest version (b105). That
    didn't help IE7, but I can now get to the SGD login dialog using FireFox.

    In IE7,I haven't seen the runtime get disabled yet, but then I haven't
    retried SGD over and over either. I'll do that once the server admins give me
    a another working id and password (the ones I had have already expired).

    If, like any sensible person, you have anti-virus and anti-spyware active,
    they could crum up an installation if you leave them running during it.
    I apologize for being able to offer only stupid and obvious solutions.

    I've been receiving the same message. I don't know anything about Java and did't realize it was loaded. This is a new laptop running Vista Home Premium. I only have a couple simple program loaded and have never received any email on this PC. Any suggestions on what caused the message or how to get rid of it.
    Thank, John
