Install on demand came up and I press download for Java Virtual Machine and it takes me to a microsoft page which says

"We're sorry. Automatic installation of Microsoft Virtual Machine is no longer provided for Microsoft Windows XP."

uh, what do I do?

Yes there's a Java Plugin configuration in the Windows Control Panel.
