my primary development and test PC is a Windows 7 @ 64 bit, with JDK 6
update 18 at 64 bit installed (and related JRE), and then I have
installed manually also the JRE 6 update 20 at 32 bit (and for the JRE
always install BEFORE the 64 bit, and then also the 32 bit version to
ensure that non-64 bit native apps can use the 32 bit version), and
all works to me (applets, applications, and Web Start Demos).

Attention that in this mixed setup there is only 1 Java Control Panel
visible, and the same apply only to 1 jre for the auto-update ... and
this is not the best for Java.

Another trick is to try to run Pivot Applets/Applications from Pivot
Demos/Tutorials WARs deployed in a local Server (Tomcat 6.x or other)
to avoid network problems ...

Tell me if you still have problems but before any test,  try to remove
all JRE and reinstall in the same order.

If these tricks works also for other users maybe we could put in Pivot
FAQ or Wiki ... Greg, what do you think ?
