What folder path does Java use to install or update installs. For adding to Software Restriction Policies/Additional Rules ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a GPO under Software Restriction Policies/Additional Rules for preventing unwanted apps to run or install in temp directories, %Appdata%, etc.

    Java updates are being blocked due to this GPO.

    What folder path does Java use to install or update installs?  I can add this path and make it unrestricted so that updates can install.

    Below is an example for a user to be able to run Spotify.  So I need the path info for Java.

    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\spotify.exe

    Thank you.

  • You can check with Adobe on this, or use process explorer to track where the files are being written.
