Setting -Dj3d.rend=d3d as an applet JVM parameter or <property name="j3d.rend" value="d3d"/> as a
JNLP property is ignored. Setting it in Java is also ignored. I can find no way to invoke DirectX for use in an
applet other than setting the property via the Java Control Panel.
Here is what I'm using:
Windows 7 64-bit
Java 1.6 (update 20) 32-bit
