A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
The JNLP file type is not associated on every install. If the .jnlp association is not there or corrupted then the install (uninstall/reinstall) does not repair it.
This may only occur on a machine with a number of JRE installed. It however should not matter. It should always 'refresh' the jnlp file type.
It's related to:
The problem still happens with 1.4.2_01.
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
delete .jnlp file association
try to run a jnlp file, it will not work
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
That a jnlp file will run
The file does not run and the user is asked which applicaiton they would like to use to run the jnlp file.
This bug can be reproduced always.
CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Not sure yet. Maybe if I remove all the versions of the JRE/SDK then the installer will reset the jnlp file type.
