    Description

      The new jre installation should preserve user's choice of selecting the old plug-in by default.

      **** Tested configuration:
      - x86 win 7 , XP
      - jre 6u10, jre 7u4-b09
      - browser: IE8, IE9

      *** Steps to reproduce:
      0) Install jre 6u10
      1) Go to java control panel/ Advanced tab/ Java Plug-in to select the old java plug-in (by uncheck the boxc 'Enable the next-generation Java Plug-in')
      2) Invoke IE to load an applet and make sure the old java plug-in is used
      3) Install 7u4-b09

      It is expected that the old plug-in from 7u4-b09 is used by default.
      Repeat step#2 and if you see the new java plug-in used, the issue is reproducible
