I know that in the past, windows 7 worked with Java Virtual Machine. I have several programs that require the JVM but I have looked at the internet and
seem to find stuff that says it is not supported in windows 8. It was on Windows 7, but not 8. I am at a loss for how to get it to work.
Is it just because I have a browser that is IE 10? I used to be able to go into advanced tools and check the boxes to make the JVM work. (I did load the latest java, but no luck using the JVM. Any suggestions for work around would be appreciated.
