ASDM 5.2 for ASA - Unable to read configuration

Started setup for the ASA 5510 with SSM-10 module. While attempting to connect with the ASDM 5.2 I received the following "ASDM is unable to read the configuration from the ASA. Please check the configuration and your connection and then try again by clicking the Refresh Icon."

I am able to connect via the Console port without any problem, where I verified that the Management interface is Up.

What am I missing?

Thank You John. You are spot-on. Removed Java JRE 6 and installed Java JRE 1.5. ASDM 5.2 is working. This issue is resolved.

Suggestion for Cisco Marketing - You should include several items in your ASDM distribution CD:

1) You must advise customers to remove their current Java installation (unless the need the most current JRE for other applications) and install JRE 1.5 or older;

2) Include a copy of Java JRE 1.5 with your ASDM distribution CD
