Both my Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3 are unable to use the 64bit
verion of Sun JRE6 under Windows XP 64bit.


So I downloaded 32bit JRE6 and installed... everything work fine.


Anyone can get the 64bit Sun JRE to work with IE or FF? (or it is
because these apps are only 32bit...so they can't use 64bit JRE?)



Currently I have following installed:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_14
C:\Program Files\Java\jre6
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6

Anything I need to check?

Do you use 64bit Firefox ?
Normally it is only 32bit, supposing thay may be 64bit port too.

But I doubt about usefulness, I suppose plugins/addons
will not be useable in 64bit FF.

Also supposing you have checked 64bit IE, not 32bit one.
