hi
got windows 10 computer
got a website which requires jnlp extension to open in java web launcher.

when I go to default application, - file extensions, for jnlp - it’s set to internet explorer, but does not give an option to change to java web launcher

it got only adobe reader/ IE/ Microsoft store. no option to select java web launcher .

any idea to set jnlp default to java web launcher ?!

Opening JNLP is different from opening the plugin for IE. JNLP will use the Javaw.exe executable which is configured via Java Control Panel:
A few things to check:
a) Open Java Control panel (or javacpl.cpl program directly).
b) Click on Advanced tab.
c) Select 'Prompt user' for JNLP File/MIME Association.


f) Open Regedit
g) Expand HKEY_Classes_Root\jnlp\shell\open\command and check command is set to use jp2launcher.exe with -securejws option with %1 parameter.

Yes, that's good. Actually i've always preferred to use javaws from the command line since you get the most output
