I discovered a bug in our code.  DownloadManager.java, method getBundleURLs:

   File tmp = new File(getBundlePath(), "urls." +
                   getCurrentProcessId() + ".properties");
           downloadFromURL(url, tmp, "", false);

We are trying to write to c:\program files\jre6\lib\bundles\urls.xxx.properties, which will fail for sure on Vista running IE 7 promoted mode.

Under medium integrity, it will work but the file will be written to the virtualized directory.  Under high integrity the actual write will work.

EVALUATION We should create this file in locallow too, similar to all other files we download on vista.
