“Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA) provider” and “Java update” issue!

We developed our own JCA-provider. We installed it and registered using "Static Registration" procedure (as described in [Installing Providers| ]). But when the Java stared automatic update process he failed with following error:

"lib\security\ Old File not found.... " (see

After this warning Java update fails and java can't work anymore. JRE return the following error:

"The procedure entry point [email protected] could not be located in dynamic link library jvm.dll" (see

We can't do anything. Java is crashed after automatic update....

Does anybody know what happened and how we need to install/register our JCA-provider to prevent such an error?

Also you can see description of this issue on [“Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA) provider” and “Java update” issue!| ]

P.S. Update was from 1.6.0_24 to 1.6.0_26 version

    Do what is said in your stackoverflow post: report this as a bug. The automatic updater must not fail only because you modified a file.

    Maybe someone from SUN/ORACLE can help...
    This forum is no different from Stackoverflow, most of us are Java devs not in any way tied to Oracle. Only if you are very lucky will an Oracle employee see and respond to this. Report it through the proper channel, which is here:

    Unfortunately, that site is down right now : /
