      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      Windows 10

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      A Windows screensaver can be created from EXE simply by renaming or copying from extension .EXE to .SCR.

      REGRESSION : Last worked in version 16.0.1

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1) Use jpackage with --type app-image and --dest "build/jpackage.dir" to create exploded release directory.
      2) Copy any generated EXE to .SCR - say test.exe => test.scr
      3) Use jpackage with --type exe --app-image to create an installer
      4) Install the application
      5) Run test.exe
      6) Run test.scr


      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      In JDK16 steps 5+6 the same application will run as expected

      ACTUAL -
      In JDK17 EA jpackage the application runs as expected for step 5, but the test.scr launches with error message:
      Error opening "C:\Program Files\APPNAME\app\test.scr.cfg" file: No such file or directory
