64-bit versions are also supported for Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8 and 9.
Note:
  • In 64-bit environments on Windows 7 and Windows 2008, with SUN JRE 1.7 or IBM JRE 1.7, the Next-Gen plug-in must be disabled.
    In such environments, with SUN JRE 1.7, the Next-Gen plugin option is sometimes enabled by default and cannot be disabled. To use the recording on playback functions on Internet Explorer in such environments, use the TAB and spacebar keys on the keyboard instead of the mouse to disable the Next-Gen option. Alternatively, set the UseNewJavaPlugin value to 00000000 in the registry entry corresponding to SUN JRE 1.7 under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in.
