I have Windows XP (IBM client for e-business 2.17) and I used IBM Java 1.5 (installed from ibm-java2-ibmpc-jre-50-win-i386.exe). One day when executing application with Java Web Start I got bluescreen. And since then javaws stopped working. I reinstalled IBM Java 1.5 - it did not help. Then I downloaded IBM Java 1.6 (IBM_DevelopmentPackage_for_Eclipse_Win32_3.0.0.zip) and I get similar error. It says:
"javaw.exe has encountered problem and needs to close"
More information in attached files.
I found such information about webrenderer:
introduced a new version of "webrenderer". This third party products is used in the tep client for the "browser view" in tep workspaces. This components writes some dll's to the local windows file machine when the tep client is started.
Pinned topic Problem with javaws.exe 1.6 and 1.5 on Windows XP. Please help.

Re: Problem with javaws.exe 1.6 and 1.5 on Windows XP. Please help.2009-02-24T13:29:22ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.The information you give seems to say that the failure was actually in a 3rd-party dll (webrenderer) installed and used by TEP (Tivoli Enterprise Portal) - am I right?
If so, this isn't really something that the Java Runtimes and SDK specialists would be expected to know anything about.
I suggest you explore under here to find a more appropriate place to look for expertise, or raise a support request as it's essentially a TEP failure.

thanks for this reply.
Now I think that this is related to using different versions of TEP concurrently or sequentially. I think Java Web Start on Windows cannot handle it. I am making tests to confirm it. In worst case I will need to clear some cache I guess. Or restart Windows ;)
Looks like Linux handles it correctly - I can use two versions of TEP concurrently (fired by the same Java).
