28.11.2018 - Oracle Java Runtime Environment 8.0.1610.12 and C:\sun folder

We have found a bug n Oracle Java Runtime Environment Installer in a version 8.0.1610.12. When a package is installed using the SYSTEM account, (CSM uses SYSTEM account for installation.) Installer creates a folder C:\sun. We have tested that this folder is not needed. You can either delete folder or leave it there.

What will CSM support team do?

  • In the next Java release this bug will be reviewed. If problem still exists, it will be fixed in package.

What can you do before next release?

  • There isn't any technical or security reason, why removing of the folder c:\sun would be mandatory, so we recommend you do to nothing. 
  • The folder also can be removed if you like so.
