    Unassociated file associations only running programs as administrator


    My issue revolves around encountering read/wright permissions with programs Java-based programs. I currently have installed jdk-8u65-windows-x64 on Windows 10 64-bit. Java is installed on C drive within program files. by Java-based programs reside outside the program folders on the C drive. Running the Java-based programs as administrator should solve the issue of read/wright permissions.

    Only when I run as administrator the Java-based programs do I encounter the error depicted the below.
    Running the program with unelevated privileges everything works as expected except for the read/write errors. Elevating the program to administrator causes it to complain about not having the correct file associations performed the selected action.

    Progress thus far...
    • The file associations are set correctly. I've check within Windows settings and the registry.
    • Uninstalled and reinstalled Java
    • Disabled UAC *required a reboot


    I'm at a loss to how to troubleshoot this as I've checked all the points of failure that I can think of so far.

    Have you tried using the 32bit version of Java? It is not always necessary to run the 64bit.

    Athough in the case of these two particular programs they can use 64-bit according to the author. Even then it still doesn't explain why I'm getting the file association discrepancy between an un-elevated and a elevated program.

    Have you tried putting the Java programs you are trying to run in one of your own user directories such as a folder in your documents directory? I have seen this solve some write permission errors.
