Default A heatsink performance calculator

This site has an on line heatsink calculator, that models natural convection cooling very well

It also models the effect of heatsources on the sink and finds the hot spots

I had this program running on my old PC running XP
It seems to be crippled on this PC running win7 64bit.

Do I need to do something to get it to run?

How do I find out if the java plug in is missing?
How do I insert it if I need it?

Thanks! I found this calc a while ago, but the link died (not sure if this is the same address) so I deleted the bookmark, then I started looking for a calculator like this again recently. Thanks for posting.
