Fix Java apps that disable Aero Glass

Posted in Windows Vista by Steve Sinchak

Do you need to run a Java application and hate how every time you run it the Aero Glass interface reverts to the non-glass look? This is caused by the way the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) communicates with the display adapter. In short, it does not want to share the 3D surface the desktop is painted on so Windows has to revert to the old method of painting the desktop and turn of Aero Glass.

The only way to fix this is to fix the JRE and Sun has done just that.  Java users need to upgrade their JRE to release 6 update 2. Click here for the direct download from Sun.  Offline Versions are also available.
