ASDM Launcher starts in a small window

Unanswered Question

When I launch the ASDM, whether in JAVA or as an MSI installation, the window starts "too small".  I can't see anything but the minimize and close button.  (see the attached screenshot)

I am running Java v1.4.2_03.  I tried the most current release of Java and it had same results, so I uninstalled it and am back on 1.4.2_03.

...any ideas?

Did you ever find a solution to this problem?  I am experiencing the same thing and can't figure it out.  ASDM starts in a tiny windows that I can only minimize or close.

Hi Eric,

Kindfly provide the below information:

version of ASDM that you are running

version of ASA software

which OS are you using

Is it a 64-bit or 32-bit OS

This info would be helpful to resolve the issue.

Hi Eric,

It seems to be  ajava compatibility issue, try installing the 32-bit java version on your 64-bit machine, and then try he asdm. One more thing, on the 64-bit, open up a browser and type the url "https:// (you should be able to access the asdm.

Hope this helps
