I created a simple .Net windows application (targetted to x86 platform since Java does not have x64 bit support) with Web Browser control in it. Whenever i try to browse an applet in web browser control (example: http://java.sun.com/applets/jdk/1.4/demo/applets/Animator/example1.html
), web browser control pops a Java window and get stuck there and do not show me the applet. I am using JRE version 1.6.0_05. This is only happening on Longhorn and Vista x64 bit. Windows 2003 x64 works fine. On all other platforms, this .Net executable works fine.
I tried everything suggested in following blog but still same issue
Do we know any known issues with Vista/longhorn x64 web browser cotnrols and Java applets?
Wednesday, May 28, 2008 12:12 AMI am having the exact same problem as stated above and I have tried to do everything I possibly could to get it to work but have failed to find any working solutions.
I have other applications (not created by me, I only have the executable) that works just fine using either the ActiveX control or the .Net WebBrowser control and Java - so I am wondering if this is possibly a compiler / IDE Environment bug related to VS2008?
I have also tried to compile this under XP 32bit and then copying the executable over to my x64 Vista machine - but with the same results.

Yes, this is indeed a JVM problem and i already filed a bug report with Sun and they reviewed and accepted it.
Here is their repsonse

My problem got fixed by compiling my code specifically for x86 (Instead of "Any CPU")
Wednesday, July 25, 2012 2:20 PMWe had the same problem up until recently and this has been fixed in latest JVM. For those who don't have the option to build the app as a 32-bit by changing the platform target to x86 try downloading and installing the latest 64-bit JVM java version "1.7.0_05". It should fix this issue.
