Microsoft Virtual Machine

By pcleveland ·
MS has stopped making it's VM available for XP users as of July 10, 2002 due to squabble w/ Sun. Is there another VM that can do the same job and work well with XP? I can't get an encrypted e-mail address w/o a functional VM. Help appreciated.

Sure....go to the source: Sun created Java.

http://java.sun.com/getjava/download.html

Hope this helps!

The above answer would probably work, but the following is quoted from the MS FAQ about VM on Windows XP:

Should I use Sun's Java virtual machine?
Microsoft is not licensed to distribute Sun's Java virtual machine and has not tested it for error-free operation with Microsoft products.

The MS Virtual Machine will be included in the XP Service Pack which is being released next week.

Good luck,
Mike

Go to http://www.tek-tips.com/gviewthread.cfm/lev2/67/lev3/70/pid/779/qid/326016 and linney lists a few links you can download. These are version 5.0.3805.
You can also use an AOL7.0 CD. Run JAVAVM.exe in AOLTECH folder. The version is 3802.
