Java Security Blocking You From Playing

Postby webearthonline » Sat Feb 15, 2014 7:00 pm

If you get the message:

Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running.



Here is one way to fix this problem. If you find others, please post them. Spread the word on this fix!

Thanks a whole lot again for the solution, WEO. For those that don't have Windows 7 or Vista, here is how to get to the Java Control Panel since they seem to differ a bit.
Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/wi ... lpanel.xml
Mac: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/ma ... lpanel.xml
(I tried to search for Linux but it doesn't seem like there is one yet.)

I figured out that you can also get past the security by switching the level to Medium. That's probably only the second best option though. I would recommend the "Exception Site List" much more.

I think this issue is fixed on a more permanent basis.
The WEO Java app is now commercially signed and should pass the new security requirements started with that latest release of Java: Version 7U51
Everyone should be able to reset the security settings back to the original ones and the WEO Java app should work now.
Please let me know how things are going.

Follow up:
I think this has resolved most of the connection issues with the newest version of Java.
All that is needed is to answer the security prompt when starting the game.

When you get the security prompt click on RUN.
You can check Do Not Show this again if you don't want this popping up again as shown below:

If seeing a white screen when starting the game, then you will have to use a browser that supports the Java Applet Plugin on your computer.
The list has been shortened in the past couple of years as some browsers have dropped support for some plugins and plugins all together.
I have been using Firefox (V49) and Internet Explorer 11 successfully on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Browsers with Java Supported
  • Firefox (versions before 52)
  • Internet Explorer
  • Chrome (versions before 45)
  • Safari

Browsers where Java Not Support
  • Firefox (as of version 52)
  • Google Chrome (as of version 45)
  • Chromium based browsers like Vivaldi, Opera
  • Microsoft Edge

Operating Systems that have Java support
  • Windows
  • OSX
  • Linux

Operating Systems that have NO Java support
  • IOS
  • Chrome OS
Java is used heavily in Andoid, but the browsers on Android don't support the Java plugin.
