If all you need Java for is ACS, then it's really easy to put the JAVA in
the same spot as ARE and set the shortcut up to use that JAVA.

You won't have to mess with the rest.

Now if you need Java for other reasons on the desktop, then yea, you'll have
to deal with the environment variables. That said, you can also create a
script to set all of that as part of the installation.

Dave, Jim, and everyone else trying to help.

First, thank you.

This change needs to be as simple/seamless as possible. Any environment
variables/paths/etc will need to be done on every PC. One of the beautiful
things about ACS was that everything is contained in the ACS folder and
subfolders. Now that is (apparently) changing.

My environment variable for Path is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Program Files
Files (x86)\Intel\iCLS Client\;C:\Program Files\Intel\iCLS
Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program
Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT;C:\Program Files
(x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program Files
(x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT;C:\Program Files
(x86)\Intel\OpenCL SDK\3.0\bin\x86;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\OpenCL
SDK\3.0\bin\x64;C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Client Access\Emulator;C:\Program
Files (x86)\IBM\Client Access\Shared;C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Client
Access\;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn\

I have never ever touched that manually and shudder to think of doing so

That's nothing like mine.

acsbundle.jar is in my ACS folder, but the acslaunch_win-XX.exe
files are in separate subfolders.

I copied the exe files to the root of my ACS directory.
