I cannot manage my switch farm from my Windows 7 computers, but it is possible to manage them from Windows XP, even virtualised. We are using models 3850, 4100 and 5000. The firmware versions are 5.3.1a and 5.3.2a because the older models cannot upgrade to version 6.x
When browsing to the switch, the URL changes to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/switchExplorer.html and then it waits. After minutes a Java popup apears stating: Application Error. The details page reports:
Coud not load file/URL specified: http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/switchExplorer_installed.ht
The Wrapped Exception lists:
com.sun.deploy.net.FailedDownloadException: Unable to load resource: http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/switchExplorer_installed.ht
at com.sun.javaws.Main.launchApp(Unknown Source)
at com.sun.javaws.Main.continueInSecureThread(Unknown Source)
at com.sun.javaws.Main$1.run(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)The Java build is 1.6.0_17-b04
What needs to be changed to enable me to manage the switches from a Windows 7 environment?

--->>> The firmware versions are 5.3.1a and 5.3.2a because the older models cannot upgrade to version 6.x
4100 and 5000 are full Supported and Capable with all 6.x Release and latest FabricOS 6.3.x
3850 is Full Supported only until Release 6.2.x ( 6.3.x is not )
BTW. the error below is not a from windows, you need to use by FabOS 5.x Java 1.5 and not 1.6

Uninstall Java 1.6 and install 1.5
