Hi all,

Does anyone know if it's possible to change where the SWT browser widget gets it's IE location? There's a section in the SWT faq:

"Q: Which Internet Explorer version do Browsers on Windows use?
A: Windows machines typically only have one production release of Internet Explorer (IE) installed at a time, so the Browser control embeds the same native WebBrowser that is used by stand-alone IE."

That's not the case I have. Under 64bit Windows 7 there are two IEs, a 32bit version under the x86 programs folder, and a 64bit version under the plain programs folder. The widget defaults to the 64bit version, anyone know how to redirect the widget to use 32bit?

My guess is:

Java/SWT-64bit can only use a 64bit Browser
Java/SWT-32bit can only use a 32bit Browser
