ASDM on Windows 10: ‘Cannot find Javaw.exe?’

KB ID 0001478


Windows 10 machine, (with Latest Java installed), while attempting to launch the ASDM you see;

Cannot Locate javaw.exe

Windows cannot find ‘javaw.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.


I should have fixed this a lot quicker than I did, because the error message was a lot more descriptive in older versions of Windows and the ASDM! This is the same problem seen on Windows 8.

You still need to install the x32 bit versions of Java! once you do it will work fine.
