        Description


        Given is a 64-bit Windows box, where both 64-bit Java SE 7 Update 9 and
        32-bit Java SE 6 Update 37 are installed.

        Furthermore, there is a Java Web Start application that requires to run on Java SE 6.
        This requirement is explicitly given in the jnlp file:

        % grep j2se jacc.jnlp
              <j2se version="1.6" max-heap-size="512m"/>


        The following behaviour is strictly reproducible:
        Java Web Start of JRE 7 is used, if this JRE 7 was installed most recently.
        Java Web Start of JRE 6 is used, if this JRE 6 was installed most recently.

        The behaviour was introduced with Java SE 7 Update 6.
        Java SE 7 Update 5 was still fine in this respect:
        regardless of the installation order, Java Web Start of JRE 1.6.0 was used.
