    problem viewing local html page containing applet!

      I have the following requisite three files in a local directory "C:\Users\thomas\Documents\vinu\hyperdyn\src\":


      When I double click the html file to launch it, the applet fails to load and the Java console prints the following error message:

      Java Plug-in 1.6.0_26
      Using JRE version 1.6.0_26-b03 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM

      c: clear console window

      Error while initializing manager: MissingFieldException[ The following required field is missing from the launch file: <jnlp><applet-desc>width], bail out

      The strange thing is that I do have the height and width parameters specified in the jnlp file:


      The stranger thing is that if I modify the path to the local directory, for example, add a dash to make it "C:\Users\thomas\Documents\vinu\hyperdyn\src-\", then the applet launches without any error! I am working on Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1. Any insights anyone may have will be greatly appreciated.
