      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.6.0_01"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_01-b06)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_01-b06, mixed mode, sharing)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I attempted to open a file via java.awt.Desktop.getDesktop().open(File file).

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Install MagicIso from www.magiciso.com.
      Try to launch any file using java.awt.Desktop.getDesktop().open(File file).

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The expected outcome was that the file be opened.
      ACTUAL -
      There was no indication that the JRE tried to open the file and no exception was thrown.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      try {
          Desktop.getDesktop().open(new File("C:\\ANYTHING"));
      } catch (Exception e) {}
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Uninstalling MagicIso resulted in the JRE opening files via java.awt.Desktop.getDesktop().open(File file) again.
