JNLP File Association Java 8.25 and 8.31


We've had a number of reports where when updating to 8.25 the JNLP file association breaks causing our application to fail to launch. We can manually ask the user to associate the file, but it's too many of them to have to do this manually. I also know we can do this through group policy but I'm trying to avoid this, although I think I'm going to have to. Has anyone else reported this? Bug?

    Did the clients happen to know what version they were upgrading from? We have seen this mostly when a system upgrades major Java versions, eg from 1.6 or 1.7 or switching from 32 to 64 bit Java and C:\Windows\System32\javaws.exe disappears or something silly.
