Cannot See Some Web Sites That Contain Java Programs in Internet Explorer 3.02


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 3.0, 3.01, 3.02 for Windows 95
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer version 3.02 for Windows NT 4.0


After you install Internet Explorer 3.02, you may no longer be able to view Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) documents that contain Java programs that load images or sounds locally.


This behavior occurs because of a security fix that restricts local file Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) in version 1516 of the Microsoft Virtual Machine (Microsoft VM). This restriction prevents a nontrusted Java program from opening a file on the local computer.


Install the latest Microsoft virtual machine for Internet Explorer update (version 1517 or later). To obtain the Microsoft VM update, visit the following Microsoft Web site, and click Downloads:

NOTE: Because the Microsoft Web site is constantly updated, the site address may change without notice. If this occurs, link to the Microsoft home page at the following address:


Under most circumstances, this is appropriate behavior for most Internet Explorer users. However, when you are developing a Java program, this behavior prevents testing the program on the local computer.
