To explain how to configure Internet Explorer (IE) 10 or and above to use 64 bit JRE on 64 bit Windows.
Prior to IE 10, earlier versions of IE on windows would only use the JRE version that matched the IE architecture. In other words, if you brought up 64 bit IE, it would only run a 64 bit JRE. If you brought up 32 bit IE, it would only run a 32 bit JRE.
Starting with IE10, Microsoft has redesigned the browser's behavior with regard to running on 64 bit architectures. By default, IE processes are started as 64bit, however the tabs which will contain the content are started as a separate 32 bit process. This can be seen in the Task Manager. Microsoft states that the change has been made to help avoid certain security issues.
This means that 64 bit IE will run the 32 bit JRE by default so there is no need for a 64 bit JRE on the system. However, if there is the need to force a 64 bit only process and use 64bit plugins (not just Java), specific configuration changes should be made.
