Vista x64 and Java

I've been reading up about possible problems with Vista x64 and Java but there seems to be conflicting information. I've read that it works with some sort of workaround and I've also read that it doesn't work at all. I haven't installed Java yet because I don't want to mess up my Vista installation which appears to be running quite nicely. Would anyone care to comment about any possible problems?
Regards .....

I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit and Java 6 update 5 and no problems at all although the upgrade from 4 to 5 left some parts of 4 behind

Re: Vista x64 and Java

Think it's a case of things getting blown out of proportion, as usual.
This is a good explanation (look at the date!): http://weblogs.java.net/blog/chet/archive/2006/10/java_on_vista_y.html
I develop with Java for my job and haven't come across any issues with the latest versions.

OK, I've just installed the latest JRE and everything appears to be working.
Thanks to both of you for reassuring me  Smiley
