One way to get Microsoft Java Virtual Machine
First go to this site and get the older version of the MS Java Virtual Machine:
This will check for the basic VM and install an older version onto Vista/XP, and then you need to go to
Microsoft and install the Java 4.0 SDK which will give you the newer base java components. You
can get those from this link: Microsoft SDK for Java 4.0 for Windows 95/98, Windows Me, Windows
NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista or later:
Once you have this installed and have re-booted your machine, then you need to go to the
MS update site and install all the updates you do not currently have. The link to MS' site is:
When the updates are complete, you will need to re-boot one more time. After re-booting
you will have the most current available Java for XP/Vista.
Sun Java Virtual Machine (JVM)
Microsoft had to take down their virtual
machine because of some legal issues. But you don't even have to use the Microsoft VM, you can use Sun Microsystem's version, and it seems to work just fine.
