    IE 8 and Java 1.5 Update 8 JRE not loading

      I am attempting to crate an IE 8 ThinApp and AppLink JRE 1.5u8 using the following articles:

      Now, I have tried the AppLink approach, as well as integrating Java in IE before doing a post scan. No matter how I what I try, I always get the following message when attempting to start an applet in the IE ThinApp:

      In the project directory, under %ProgramFilesDir%\Java\jre1.5.0_08\bin, there is no server directory, which is correct. The server directory should only be available when installing the JDK, not the JRE. Nonetheless, I vopied the client dir and renamed it to server, but I am still receiving the same error.

      I am doing all capturing on a Windows XP Sp 2 32-bit OS, and would like to run this on a Windows 7 64-bit system. I have not been able to find a solution to this problem anywhere.

      I am using ThinApp Setup Capture v5.2.2

          This thin app issue can occur by “Apply Operating System” step in an SCCM task sequence  What this essentially does is connect the image build computer to a UNC share containing a copy of Windows 7 source media, and perform an unattended setup of the OS. As a workaround directly apply INSTALL.WIM from the source media to the build PC, as a starting point  image build process
