A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
On Windows 10 Creators Update, jnlp file cannot launch from IE11 when 64bit jdk (or jre or both) installed.

Uninstalling 64bit jre and installing only 32bit jre is the only way to launch jnlp file on Creators Update.

Checked this on Windows 10 (build 1703) with IE 11 and could confirm the issue as reported. The JNLP launch successfully in Microsoft Edge browser though. Result: 8u131: FAIL (32-bit and 64-bit both are installed) 8u141: FAIL (32-bit and 64-bit both are installed) 8u144: FAIL (32-bit and 64-bit both are installed) 9 ea b180: FAIL with 32-bit as well with 64-bit both To reproduce: Install JRE 8u144 (both 32 bit and 64 bit). Run the Dynamic Tree demo from below web page: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/webstart/examplesIndex.html Note that the Security scan run briefly and then the message disappears. The Downloads directory remain empty. Note: This works fine with earlier build 1607 of Windows 10 Removing 64-bit version from the system, bring back the normalcy and the application run fine.
