The problem mentioned in my question is related to Internet Explorer, to be precise, version 11, on Windows 8 and 8.1.We see the same problem with Java 7u51, IE11 and Windows 8.1. After the installation, I cleared Java Cache, browser's Cache, and logged into a secure website that uses an Applet to provide certain additional services to the user. I accessed to check the Java version detected in Internet Explorer, and the java website says: Other browsers can check Java, and the mentioned applet works as expected: As the applet works as expected in other browsers, I can assume the problem is not the Applet nor its deployment files/processes, but the compatibility of JRE 7u51 with IE 11.

Once Java(tm) Plug -In 2 SSV Helper was incompatible Above solution did not work for me. As with a previous iteration of such problems, what worked for me was, after installation, unchecking "Internet Options | Security | Enable Protected Mode", running a Java applet and then re-checking it and everything is fine.

Do people at Oracle not test on Windows 8 with IE or does this only happen for people with particular extensions enabled?

The Moto G5S is an affordable dual rear camera phone and while the output isn't perfect, it is fun to get creative with the depth enabled mode.

The rest of the phone has all of the great Moto software enhancements with a fairly stock Android experience.

As additional measure, I used the tool to uninstall any previous and unsecure JRE version (using Google Chrome).

After double checking IE 11, I can see the Java Addons enabled and versioned to 7u51: I know IE has been improved; even so, we recommend to our customers to use Google Chrome or Firefox as these browsers have proven to be more compatible with our web applications.

(We will probably just start using the web version of deploy instead of a local copy). There is no sense in downloading the x86 installer on an x64 based OS. This type of issue is cropping up again using the Windows 8 / IE 11 combination with the new version of Java (1.8.0_31).

However, a (very) similar problem persists for our Safari users. The installation seems to work, but after installing Java via the Java Control Panel Update tab, every time you run a Java applet you are told your version of Java is outdated, but when you follow the prompts to again update, you are told your version of Java is newer than the one on the web.

seems like a hack but I guess the latest JRE does not handle IPv6 type requests properly Update deploy They are infrequent, so I live with them for the convenience of faster startup times. In the Java Control Panel, under the Security tab, uncheck "Enable Java content in the browser" and Apply it. This worked for me, and I had been struggling with this issue for days.
