    Default I can't seem to open an html-file

    When I try to open an html-file with an applet from my student-CD, I click on an error-message for more details to get this window for the forum to click on,

    blockedException.JPG

    then got this other window to click on for the details themselves.

    javaConsole.JPGThis window says:

    ----------------------------------------------------
    c: clear console window
    f: finalize objects on finalization queue
    g: garbage collect
    h: display this help message
    l: dump classloader list
    m: print memory usage
    o: trigger logging
    q: hide console
    r: reload policy configuration
    s: dump system and deployment properties
    t: dump thread list
    v: dump thread stack
    x: clear classloader cache
    0-5: set trace level to <n>
    ----------------------------------------------------

    So, I have the following questions:

    1. First of all, should I just get security-setting help instead of Java-help?
    2. How do I get this web-page to work without any of this stuff happening?
    3. Is the latter-window merely a set of instructions to follow?

    Have you tried changing the Security level of Java?
    On Windows there is a Java Icon in the Control Panel where you can change the security level.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I notice that I did just that, but the medium-level didn't work, and the low-one made the computer show this:

    In other words: I should just trust what's in the CD anyway, and know that anything won't go inside the computer without me knowing this, right?

    It's best not to run software that you don't trust.

    I see what you mean. Now I know the only problem for me is getting the html-file to display an applet. I use this kind of html-code format for it, so tell me if it's outdated and/or flawed:

    <APPLET CODE="Filename.class" WIDTH=anyNumber HEIGHT=anyNumber>
    </APPLET>

    Default Re: I can't seem to open an html-file

    I don't include the .class extension in the code= attribute. Filename.class is a filename. Filename is a classname. Some browsers want just the classname, not the filename.

    Default Re: I can't seem to open an html-file

    I noticed something else, and it's been happening the whole time, even after I tried what you said. My browser (Internet Explorer 10) has been restricting my page from running scripts or ActiveX controls. I tried to consider the browser's other internet-options, but that didn't seem to work. Is there anything else I can do?

    I finally fixed the problem with the given security advice by installing the Java Runtime Environment before I applied the advice itself. So, thanks Norm. This thread is solved.
