Virtual Training

What do I do if I get "kicked out" of Internet Explorer or if I get a popup window with a little red "x" in it?

Make sure you have Sun's Java Virtual Machine installed on your local machine. It should be the Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE), not the J2SE Development Kit (JDK). You can check this by performing the following:

  • Go to your Start menu.
  • Select Run. Type "cmd", then hit OK.
  • In the black box that appears, Enter "java -version", then hit Enter.
  • The output should look like this:

    java version "1.5.0_03"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_02-b09)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_02-b09, mixed mode)

You may then close the command prompt. The JVM version necessary to view virtual machines must be 1.5.0 or higher. If you receive an error, or if it is a different "environment," you may need to install or reinstall Sun's Java:
