        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        After uninstalling java 1.7 and installing 1.6 u27 the JNLP files are no longer associated with java webstart
        it is still possible to run them through the command line when specifying the path to javaws followed by a link to the JNLP file.

        install java 1.7
        uninstall java 1.7
        install java 1.6u27
        try to open a JNLP file


        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        the JNLP file is opened by javaws
        ACTUAL -
        a windows "open with" dialog appears prompting the user to select which program to use when opening the file.

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        Manually create the file association
