    Java 7 Web start fails to download Java 1.6 version

      Sorry for the almost exact duplication of a previous thread, but that was closed (Java 7 Web start fails to download Java 1.6 version


      When launching an application requiring Java 1.6 with a Java 1.7 web start it fails when it tries to download 1.6 with the following message:

      "Unable to download http://javadl-esd.sun.com/update/1.6.0/1.6.0_29-b11.xml for installation"

      Problem only seems to occur on Windows 7 (64 bit), seems fine on Windows XP.

      Bug has been raised with Oracle by poster Matt Taylor - http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7168311

      Does anybody have any ideas?

      Thanks,
      Lee.
