I posted the problem in JDeveloper and ADF a week ago but have had no response. To avoid me rewriting a long explanation you could find it using my no. 918805.

Thanks for your response of 12 March. Did I not provide enough information on 14 March?
I'm not sure about the significance of your comment when you say "I have no problems running Java programs on Windows 7 as long as I don't try to go outside a user's home environment."There are only two hard disk area that you should be able to guarantee to create files and directories - the users home directory (System.getProperty("user.home")) and subdirectory tree and the tmp directory ( System.getProperty("java.io.tmpdir") ) and it's subdirectory tree.
I'm using a Windows XP, as administrator and sole user admittedly, and have no problems running Java programs anywhere in the system.XP security is a joke.
On my Windows 7 machine I am also administrator and sole user and have no problems running Java programs anywhere in the system except I can't run a downloaded program when the Account Control is set on which I can do on my Windows7 machine. What's the difference and how do I resolve the problem for all the other people I might wish to send my software to?Don't try to create files and directories outside of the home directory tree or the tmp directory tree. I'm not an expert on Windows but I create cross platform Java programs and they pretty much run anywhere as long as I don't try to create files and directories outside of the two safe areas.
