Change the Filetype Association for JNLP (for Webmeeting/Elluminate)

These instructions are intended for computers that have a 64-bit version Microsoft Windows; to find out if this is the case for yourself, follow these steps:

  • Click Start
  • Right click Computer
  • Click Properties
  • Look for "System Type" (either 32-bit or 64-bit will be displayed)

If you have a 64-bit operating system, the standard Java installation doesn't establish the filetype association correctly. To fix this, you will need to change the filetype association for JNLP files to use javaws.exe (located in c:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaws.exe).

Follow the video below.
