    Hi all

    By default SystemRoot is set by windows OS and all processes inherits environment from the parent process (i.e. SystemRoot is set properly).

    However if you configure your environment for a process ):
    java.lang.Runtime.exec(String[] cmdarray, String[] envp);
    Then if cmdarray = new String[]{"..../cvm.exe"....}; and envp massive does not have string "SystemRoot=C:\WINDOWS".
    You will get application error:
    "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150004). Click on OK to terminate the application."

    Can anyone please suggest (please point to some documentation/site) if it is a must to specify "SystemRoot=C:\WINDOWS" in envp & if it is valid to get this application error
    or if it is a bug in our code?
