Problem Enabling the New Plugin on XP with b26
OK, so I downloaded b26 of jdk6uN, and then I tried to turn on the new plug-in form the control panel. I immediately get this pop up error box saying: Unable to change Java Plug-in Settings. In the detail section of the error it also said: "The next generation Java Plug-in option cannot be changed at this time because one or more browsers are running. Please close ...". So I went in and closed all browser instances that happened to be running, tried again. Same error. Then I even tried to kill all java processes that were running. Still same error. I recall seeing this same problem with earlier build version of 6uN. But it seemed to have gone way when I tried a newer build. Now it's back again. Is this the expected behavior as we get closer to official release. I hate to say I'm not terribly amused if that's the case.
And that's not all. Since today is FF3 day, I figured maybe if I try again with FF3, things might work fine. Not a chance. As soon as I tried to hit an applet, FF3 didn't even recognize that I have b26 installed, and asked me to "click here to get the new Java Plug-in".
Any idea why is this happening now with this RC b26 release?
