After the installation of Windows 10 Creator update, Java Web Start applications like the AdminUI don't start anymore if I try to launch them out of the Internet Explorer. In other browsers everything works fine.

This is a bug in JRE 8 64bit which exists until revision 151 as described here:

We recommend updating to the most recent Java version to resolve this issue.

Other possibilities are:

1. Uninstall 64bit JRE and install 32bit version if you haven't already, as the problem only exists in 64bit version.

2. Use an alternative browser like Edge, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

3. (Not recommended) You can also delete the following registry keys to make it work again (described at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Low Rights\ElevationPolicy{5852F5ED-8BF4-11D4-A245-0080C6F74284}

  • AppName
  • AppPath
  • Policy

Once all 3 keys are deleted, the problem is solved and Java apps start again.
