Install or Re-Install the Microsoft Java Virtual Machine

Back in January of 2004, Jim Byrd put together a great all-in-one posting to the microsoft.public.windowsupdate UseNet newsgroup about installing or re-installing the Microsoft Java Virtual Machine. Now that Microsoft and Sun are patching things up, we should see some better support for the VM shortly. In the meantime, for those of you who have broken Java applets as a result of installing Windows XP Service Pack 1a (or for whatever other reason), and are trying to use the Sun Microsystems Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in its place unsuccessfully, I have put together a step-by-step job aid document with links to the required files which can be reached here. I have copied all of the required files here on my server in case any of the original links from the archived newsgroup posting are no longer available.
