Java 2 Runtime Environment

Java may be required for your course website.  Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine (MSJVM)
continues as the preferred Java Engine with our course website platforms. 
Microsoft is discontinuing support for this product, systems
already installed with it should not be affected.

Check if MSJVM is installed your system using the following steps.

If your system has Microsoft VM (title may vary slightly), ensure the JIT compiler is checked and
configured as illustrated.  Disable Java (Sun) if present.  Make sure you have the necessary Windows
Critical update for MSJVM by visiting Windows Update.

Important!  After downloading and installing, visit Windows Update to receive the latest patch.

This Critical Update should be available from the Windows Update site, after installing the MSJVM.

If for any reason you cannot install MSJVM, install the latest Java
Engine from Sun Microsystems and set for Internet Explorer.

Java versions older than 1.4.2_4 are not officially supported and may cause undesirable effects with
