I have got jinitiator v1.3113 installed on some machines. It behaves well when run by local admin and I can go into the control panel and change the path for the cache folder. This appears to make the changes within the administrators profile and hold them in a properties file.

When a 'locked down' user tries to change the location of the cache file, upon trying to apply them, I am given a 'Failed to write property file: \\DomainController\.jinit\properties13113 (The Network Path was not found).

I have searched all over the machine, both files and registry to determine what is possibly pointing to this network location but I cannot find anything. I can only presume that it is defaulting to this as it cant find a certain file.

I did notice that the Java console states that the 'User Home Directory' is '\\DomainController' which obviously isnt right.

Any bright ideas would be much appreciated!

Download FileMon and RegMon from SysInternals. Put them on the machine, login as a restricted user, and use runas to start them as an admin user. Once they have started try to make the change and then stop them from logging. Then go through and look for the Access Denied error to determine where you need to make your security change.

Thanks for the suggestion. I had already tried that but I decided to give it another go just in case I missed something. Still no luck.

I have read over documentation on Jinitiator and I cant find anything to do with this. Quite annoying.

Is it possible for you to try a newer version of the Jinitiator?
We recently packaged version and we deployed it to our locked down users without any problems.
Could it be that they fixed that thing?
