In ASDM, clear ASDM cache and internal log buffer (nothing to do with firewall config or logs) and then select refresh ASDM with the running configuration on the device option. all these options are there in the file menu of ASDM.

This will help you to run ASDM in all the JAVA versions. You might not want to change the JAVA version just for one application, other apps may want to use the latest one.

If you still face issues,

1) Find the asdm-launcher.config file (C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\ASDM\asdm-launcher.config)

2) Right click, choose properties and remove the 'read only' check

3) Open the file and add the following line:

javapath c:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_07\bin\client\jvm.dll

4) Save the file and replace the read only check

Kindly let me know if this works for you.

Can you post the exact error. It may issue with your JAVA. Is it opening in your browser.

If not opening, issue the command

http server enable

http inside

if still issues, can you check the IOS and asdm version.

Do you have a firewall application installed in your host machine? What browser are you using? What is the Java version?
