Files of type JNLP have to be run by Java Web Start to open your Blackboard Collaborate Web Conferencing sessions and recordings. In some cases Windows with Java 7 update 40 installed may have JNLP files become associated with another application, causing it to open incorrectly, or not at all. Also, the JNLP files may not be entered as a valid file type in the control panel. In this case, it is required to associate JNLP Files on windows without using the Control Panel.
Note: Steps in the videos have to be modified if users have a different version of Java (32bit vs 64bit). The install location of Java depends on its version. and 64 bit Java will be in "Program Files" and 32 bit Java will be in "Program Files (x86)"
