        Description

        The exe's such as java.exe, javaws.exe should be placed under the correct location.

        Steps to reproduce:

        1. Install JRE 1.6.0 Mustang / 1.5.0 UR 32 Java on 64 Bit OS

        2. Open the command prompt and try java -version, will give error message saying that the command is not recognized

        3. Now launch any demo using by invoking the javawebstart using the command ${system driver}/Program Files(x86)/Java/jre1.6.0/bin/javaws

        4. Create the shortcut by granting the permission for the Desktop Integeration Dialog

        5. Now try launching the Cached application using the Shortcut created.

        Expected: The demo application should be launcher properly.

        This is due to javaws.exe is placed under the ${system driver}/Windows/SysWOW64/ dir and actual shortcut link files get pointed to the ${system drive}/Windows/Sytem32/ dir. That's why the java -version is not working as expected.
