Screenshot applet stops working in windows 7 64 bits

Hi all.

I m using Jira 4.2.4-b591

Recently we started changing our desktop computers from Windows XP to Windows 7 64 bits.

On XP the screenshot applet worked fine but on Windows 7 64 bits it doesn t work.

It only shows the java icon.

It happens in every browser we ve tried: Firefox 19.0, IE9, Chrome 25.0.

This is what is shown in the java console when I try to use the attach screenshot option in a Jira issue (sorry for the spanish):

The last line shows the server is asking for a cookie configuration.

Any clue?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Janet.

Thanks for your answer.

I checked my JRE and it is 1.6.x.

Finally it was a problem with the antivirus.

I was using AVG 2011 and it seems to block the use of the applet.

I upgraded to AVG 2012 and now it works fine.

hi Jorge,

I presume that JIRA 4.2.x is running on JDK/JRE 1.6.x .

The screenshot Applet require both client and server side JDK/JRE to be in the same version in order to work. Eg: if JIRA is running on JDK 1.6.20 , the client must use any JDK/JRE 1.6.x .

So, at the moment you might want to advice your user to attach the screenshot using Attach File menu.

Since JIRA 4.2.x has reach the End Of Life, I would recommend to plan for your upgrade to JIRA 5.2.x so that your user will be able to use the Screenshot applet and you can enjoy a lot of fixes.
