Appears that you can get annoying ‘Permission Exceptions‘ with the latest Java if you don’t have all of the Windows 7 Updates installed as well.
This is what it appears. I could be wrong.
I was getting ‘Permission’ errors after updating to 7.51. Then I also happened to install all the Windows 7 updates from the last 2 months. Yes, this was on my backup PC. Once the Windows Updates were installed Java started working normally again. Could have been a coincidence. Yes, I had restarted PRIOR to installing the 7 Updates BUT that alone didn’t fix the Java permissions.
This was particularly annoying when trying to use the JPL Small-Body Database orbital model at ssd.jpl.nasa.gov.
For now it works. So just a heads up in case you run into this. Peace.
