An applet is being run using the java plugin (1.3.1_07) with IE 6.0 on win XP. The applet is launched in a browser which was started via a shortcut to IE on the user's desktop. The plugin jvm process crashes outputting the hotspot error log file (hs_err_pidX.log) to the end user's desktop. The log file should not appear on the user's desktop. Need to control where the hs_err_pidX.log file is placed.
