How does it fail? Please provide detailed information including the browser you're using and any exceptions printed on the Java Console.

Any issue is most likely your graphics drivers. OpenGL support is still not very good on Windows Vista due to Microsoft's disallowing vendors to provide direct hardware-accelerated OpenGL support until the last minute. You should look for a more up to date graphics driver for your card and if you are using the latest one then you should report any problems to your card vendor.

The error is "Failed to create reference rasterizer 3D device,-
3DERROR_UNAVAILABLE

I will try to get a later video driver, and retry. I will post the results.

Thanks
