I have followed the steps on the java website to install the java kit and netbeans on my comp, but i cannot get it to run applets. This problem persists in both netbeans and appletviewer via command prompt. I hav downloaded the latest version 1.4.2 and am running xp pro.

Whenever i try and run a applet ive written OR one ive downloaded the same error mesge apears...
"start:applet not initialized", and its just a plain white screen.
The java files are compiling via command prompt but not running, help me please
