WORK AROUND see SSVHelper.cmd attached to CR6929996.

EVALUATION Code which registers SSV Helper object with IE exists in regutils.dll and successfully sets SSV Helper registry entries. The problem is that the same dll calls latter on CanonicalizeJava2Registry() function which directly removes back that SSV helper registry.

WORK AROUND Register SSV Helper manually by setting following registry: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{761497BB-D6F0-462C-B6EB-D4DAF1D92D43}] @="SSVHelper Class" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{761497BB-D6F0-462C-B6EB-D4DAF1D92D43}\InprocServer32] @="C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre6\\bin\\ssv.dll" "ThreadingModel"="Apartment" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0013-0001-FFFF-ABCDEFFEDCBA}] @="Java Plug-in" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0013-0001-FFFF-ABCDEFFEDCBA}\InprocServer32] @="C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre6\\bin\\ssv.dll" "ThreadingModel"="Apartment" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0014-0002-FFFF-ABCDEFFEDCBA}] @="Java Plug-in" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0014-0002-FFFF-ABCDEFFEDCBA}\InprocServer32] @="C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre6\\bin\\ssv.dll" "ThreadingModel"="Apartment" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0015-0000-FFFF-ABCDEFFEDCBA}] @="Java Plug-in" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0015-0000-FFFF-ABCDEFFEDCBA}\InprocServer32] @="C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre6\\bin\\ssv.dll" "ThreadingModel"="Apartment" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-FFFF-ABCDEFFEDCBA}\InprocServer32] @="C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre6\\bin\\ssv.dll" "ThreadingModel"="Apartment" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{761497BB-D6F0-462C-B6EB-D4DAF1D92D43}] "NoExplorer"=dword:00000001
