Hi All,

I'm looking for a solution on "autodownload JRE verison" that is required by webstart application. When a remote desktop's user access the webstart app and if the remote desktop does not have required JRE/Webstart version, I want the PC to automatically download this specfic version of jre(java_xx_sdk-5_02-windows.exe) from the intranet instead of using sun's autodownload website, since we do not want our users to goto internet. I appreciate if anyone has working example

Hi Baski,

I would be interested in this also. There is an example on the web from Sun but it does not work and it was mentioned that it would. Not sure why Sun has not put a working example out for people at the time of the 1.6 release.

Keep trying.
