Why can't I get Java to run on my 64-bit version of Internet Explorer?

Windows comes with both 64 and 32 bit versions of IE, because there are some utilities like Java that don't run on 64 bit. Java does have a 64 bit version, however.

64-bit Windows is really only utilized on systems with more than 4GB of RAM. If he doesn't have that, there's no disadvantage to running 32-bit Windows.
