Just had mine installed this morning and with a little hacking have the dashboard working fine across the school, being served up from an idle IIS install. I only have IE8, Firefox and Chrome to hand, so IE7 may still play up, but I'll explain what I did...
The main app is an Adobe Flex thing and the Java applet is actually just a detection app which sends as subnet broadcast on UDP/2317 to detect the data logger (An EnergyICT WebRTU Z3, in case anyone cares). If your network has more than one subnet (and you don't have UDP helper running) or there's a firewall in the way, the meter won't necessarily be detected automatically, I assume this is what's happening in your case.
So, assuming you know the IP of the meter (its MAC probably starts with 00:24) , you won't need the Java Applet to load at all and can just fake the XML response it provides - getting the thing to work across subnets and making the page load a fair bit quicker.
You can get the serial number of your meter by going to its built in web server (serial should be in the format nnnn-nnnnnn-nnnn).

I will give this a go because the issue with IE7 was that it didn't load the window to manually input the ip.
The only thing i find really strange is that it detects the meter automatically if installed directly on the machine but as soon as i move the location of the files it looses it.
Thanks alot for the workaround thats gonna help me out loads as we 've got around 5 sites with these on, waiting for a network point to be installed nearby

I want to serve the energy meter to the school via IIS so it is available via any web browser..
I have used your index file and filled in the blanks.
In IIS I've setup a new site called EnergyMeter and pointed it to the new Index file you provided.
I've set the IP address up as the same one the energy meter is running on - is that correct?
Also are there any other IIS settings I need to adjust to get the site served?
I can't get it to work but it's probably something simple that I've done wrong...
Any help appreciated.

I am still having issues with the meter and havent been able to make it work from a shared location. It only seems to work if I install application directly on the machine. I tried your Index file with the preloaded settings but it still doesnt work. just gets stuck at the "Detecting Logger" bit. But if I install the app directly it works fine.
any suggestions? could it be the browser stopping JS?
