Platform(s): Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, Windows 10
Java version(s): 7.0, 8.0
On Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, while attempting to install Java or running Java applets or applications, error message is displayed
Error : Exception_Access_Violation
We are still investigating root cause of this issue.
This issue could be seen due to User Account Control (UAC) feature
enabled on Windows Vista or Windows 7 operating system.
UAC is enabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7, as a result, you might
encounter some compatibility problems with different applications that
have not yet been updated for the Windows UAC component
Temporarily disabling UAC may resolve the exception access issue, however,
turning off UAC reduces the security of your system. We do not
recommend leaving UAC disabled.
