JRE8-WN-000010 - Oracle JRE 8 must have a deployment.config file present.

Information

By default no deployment.config file exists; thus, no system-wide deployment.properties file exists. The file must be created. The deployment.config file is used for specifying the location and execution of system-level properties for the Java Runtime Environment. Without the deployment.config file, setting particular options for the Java control panel is impossible.

The deployment.config file can be created in either of the following locations:

<Windows Directory>\Sun\Java\Deployment\deployment.config
- or -
<JRE Installation Directory>\lib\deployment.config

Solution

By default, no 'deployment.config' file exists; a text file must be created. Create a JRE deployment configuration file in either:

<Windows Directory>\Sun\Java\Deployment\deployment.config
- or -
<JRE Installation Directory>\Lib\deployment.config
