I have nearly the same issue, but from another perspective.
Since Update from 8.121 to 8.131 neither the Java verify nor JPNL Applets are working anymore.
Symptoms are like this:
1. start internet explorer 11
2. browse to website (e.g.: https://www.in-manager.arcor.de/INManager/pwd )
3. IE freezes.
4. open Task Manager
5. You can see a single instance of jp2launcher.exe running idle.
6. killing the process unfreezes internet explorer but w/o loading the applet of course.
I tried to build a new virtual machine using opera and firefox under Linux, but with the same behavior.
Is this related to the discontinued NPAPI support?
Hi. Exactly the same problem with our Java application in our company's environment. Latest working JavaWS was from Java 8 update 92.
I tried many times sequence App-V package, tried to monitor processes, but no luck.
Today I found there is new Java 8 update 141 out, so I'll try it.
No progress in Java 8 update 141. The same behavior.
Java 8 update 144 is out, no change
I am having exactly the same issue. Is this problem being looked into by Oracle? This is causing serious issues here now.
No update from my side so far. I'm working with a person from MS support trying to solve that. So far we had to include java in our base Citrix/XenDesktop image.
Exact same problem here... java pops up for a couple seconds, tries to load then closes down. Works fine when running java apps within Internet Explorer itself.
I had the same issue, when i packaged this i packaged it using a PVAD pointing to the Local App Data folder (excluded local app data folder in the ui before sequencing) and then also installed java to the same local app data folder. Need to do some tidying up and test the exception site list but that got it working for me.
Has anyone found a fix for this issue, other than using JRE9? We have the same problem and really need this to work with the latest java 8 client.
If you have not come across this site / documentation - you may find it useful.
This documentation addresses many of the general java issues w/ AppV. The site has good insight on IE11 freezes and PVAD.
Confirmed, workaround is working fine !Adding deployment.security.use.insecure.launcher=true to deplyment.properties solved the issue. You can :

Verified with the versions where it has failed prior (JDK 8u102 b14, JDK 8u111 b14 and JDK 162). "
Remove localAppData from Exclusions prior to sequencing and edit the deplyment.properties in AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment during sequencing OR somehow edit the deplyment.properties in AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment for the existing package in local, not virtualized location (if localLow was in excludes) OR edit the global per machine in %windir%\Sun\Java\DeploymentMore on deployment.properties
