Due to security enhancements that have been added to Java 7 as of update 25, the release of a new JRE on Oracle's website will automatically block certain features in the older versions of Java plug-ins that may be installed on your system.
These blocked features will prevent the web client of certain Serena products from working, such as Dimensions CM and PVCS Version Manager.


  • If you are using Dimensions CM, please see Knowledgebase Solution S140201
  • If you are using PVCS Version Manager, please see Knowledgebase Solution S140200
