    -------------------
    dont know how this edit stuff works but i'll give it a try ;)

    We're sorry. Automatic installation of Microsoft Virtual Machine is no longer provided for Microsoft Windows XP.

    So, in reference to this news... :) I have the JRE from Sun installed currently. Should I 1) download the VM in addition 2) uninstall the JRE and install the VM 3) leave everything as is?

    Hmm, depends what it looks for to determine that you need it...

    I did a clean install the night before this thread was posted and the java machine was not available for update on there, after this thread was posted it was available again, there are a few threads in Applications with download links, I suggest that you install it manually.
