EVALUATION

This issue is caused by bug fix 6710203 in 6u10 b31, which is trying to link msvcrt71.dll in WinConfig.java, unfortunately, there is no msvcrt71.dll in 64bit OS and we are not shipping this dll in JRE/bin directory as well, a link exception will be thrown which cause Java control panel exit.
