When I connect to a server to get and deploy my web start application in Internet Explorer 11, I see a flash of the browser's Download popup that says 8.8KB of webstart.jnlp was downloaded and it has buttons to Cancel or Show Downloads. (It took many tries to catch the text since it disappears quickly.) The application never loads and the jnlp file does not show up in the View Downloads of IE. It never gets to the point of launching Java as I have the Java Console set to Show with all of the Debugging options on. I have installed the latest 64 bit JRE from Java 1.8.0_144. I am running on Windows 10 with the last Creator update with IE 11 Version 11.483.15063.0.
I found online a workaround by uninstalling the 64 bit JRE and installing the 32 bit one. The problem is I need the 64 bit version to operate properly. Also our software is deployed at various sites and to have them remove their Java 8 x64 JREs will be a problem.
Things I've tried:
The place online where I found the workaround said this occurred for them after doing the Creators update for Windows 10.
Is there anything else I can try?
