Remove AU dependency in Java Control Panel

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • OS:
      windows_7

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Calls to Java Control Panels fail with error in deploy.dll on some machines regularly on other like every second try.

      It seems the Control Panel needs the RegKey:
      HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Auto Update\AUVersion

      no matter, whether Auto Update has been installed or not. Within an Enterprise, it is not possible to have the Auto Updater installed, so we don't have it.

      Anyway, since 7u21 and still with 7u25, we need that single reg-key to have a stable runnable Java Control Panel.



      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 7u17

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Install JRE7u25 via the msi instead of the full package via the exe. Do not install the Auto Update Component. Do the 32-Bit install on Window7 64 Bit. Try to run javacpl.exe

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Control Panle pops up.
      ACTUAL -
      Sometimes it behaves as expected. Sometimes deploy.dll crashes.
