MIcrosoft VM

I want to use an applet on a particular website, but it requires Microsoft VM to run.
General Instructions

Use the following settings in your Internet Browser (mandatory)

1. Sun JVM must be disabled :
Go to Internet Browser. --> Tools --> Internet Options --> Advanced --> Java (Sun).
(Change this setting only if aforesaid setting are found)

2. Enable Microsoft VM :
Go to Internet Browser --> Tools --> Internet Options --> Advanced --> Java Console enabled.
Go to Internet Browser --> Tools --> Internet Options --> Advanced --> Java Logging enabled.
Go to Internet Browser --> Tools --> Internet Options --> Advanced --> JIT complier for virtual machine enabled.

Note : If you don't find the above settings on your computer, you may need to download JVM on your machine. Click here to download and save this on your desktop. Post download, double click on the file downloaded which will automatically update your system. Thereafter recheck for the above settings.

3. For better results use IE 5.5 or above with 128 bit encryption. If it's not, please download the latest version of Internet Explorer from Microsoft website.

4. Best viewed on 800X600 pixels :
Right click on Desktop --> choose Properties --> Settings --> Screen area.

Now how do I install microsoft VM on my fedora?

For most Java applets on a website, it is sufficient to install the Sun Java plugin:
yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin
This particular website is making the assumption that you are running Microsoft Internet Explorer. However, the instructions are quite out of date (it talks about using version 5.5, and a screen resolution of 800x600).

The Microsoft Java VM is designed for Windows, not for any other operating system. However, if the website will only work with the Microsoft Java VM, it implies that they are using non-standard Java extensions.

I would suggest that you try out the site with the Sun Java plugin anyway. If it doesn't work, then the website is forcing you to use Internet Explorer under Windows.

And.... another alternative if the Sun Java plugin doesn't work is ie4linux, which is basically running IE under WINE.

Sun plugin doesn't work.. And I think that its written specifically for Microsoft VM. Thats why the website is telling to disable sun JVM.
