Java Runtime Environment 7 Update 51 stops Profile Editor working under Protection Service portal

We are experiencing issues with the F-Secure Protection Service Portal since an update was issued for Java Runtime Environment to 7 update 51.


After logging on to the portal and attempting to edit profiles under Profiles -> Launch Profile Editor, we now only get the message “F-Secure Profile Editor requires version 6 or higher of the Java Runtime Environment to be installed. It can be downloaded from”.


We have tried two different laptops and tried running it on IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera with the same results in all.


Prior to the update we were able to Launch the Profile Editor successfully, since the update it just fails. Oracle always recommend running the latest updates and do not recommend uninstalling to go back to previous versions.


Are you aware of this issue with JRE 7 update 51.
