      Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        From 8u11.
        Until 8u5, it worked correctry.


        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Windows 8.1 x86_64

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        We used to use USER_JPI_PROFILE environment variable to switch user profile for Java Web Start.

        Please see also, bug:6611382
        http://bugs.java.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6611382

        Until 8u5, it worked as expected, but from 8u11 (including 8u20), it doesn't work anymore.

        Specifying USER_JPI_PROFILE environment variable seems to have no meaning at all.


        REGRESSION. Last worked in version 8u5

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        1. Set USER_JPI_PROFILE to some directory
        2. Start some Java Web Start application.



        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        3. Check if directory %USER_JPI_PROFILE%\Sun\Java\Deployment is created and deployment.properties file is created in the directory. (expected behavior)
        ACTUAL -
        %USER_JPI_PROFILE%\Sun\Java\Deployment directory is not created.


        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.
