There is no HKLM\Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\BrowserJavaVersion after 64 bit JRE install. isPlugin2() uses this key(see 7082676).

EVALUATION fixed in latest deploy nightly http://rehudson.sfbay.sun.com:8080/hudson/user/in81039/my-views/view/JDK8/job/jdk8_deploy-2-build-windows-i586-product/

EVALUATION This should be fixed after installer call using RegisterDeploy() to create registry keys.

EVALUATION BrowserJavaVersion only get created when there's FF installed on system by checking HKLM/SOFTWARE/Mozilla/Mozilla Firefox/CurrentVersion . Because there's no 64 bit Firefox, so 64 bit JRE never create this key.
