Windows 8 PATH issue

I removed Windows 8 calculator from the download as I am having PATH issues, can someone with Windows 8 download this small java file and let me know what the output is as I can’t figure out how java displays Windows 8 and also where the application data is located on Windows 8 and I don’t have Windows 8 to test it.

This was run on my Windows 7 virtual machine.

C:\Users\Ricardo\Desktop>”c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_15\bin\java.exe” -jar checkOSName.jar

Operating System Name = windows 7
C:\Users\Ricardo\Application Data\ ==> TRUE
C:\Users\Ricardo\Local Settings\Application Data\ ==> TRUE

Download checkOSName 

If you could download it and send me the result would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Finally managed to find out where to put the calculator config for Windows 8 & 8.1


    if (osName.equals("windows 8")) {
    workingDir = (homeDir + "\\AppData\\" + "Roaming\\" + configFile);
    } else(osName.equals("windows 8.1")) {
    workingDir = (homeDir + "\\AppD ata\\" + "Roaming\\" + configFile);
    }
