JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Dsun.locale.formatasdefault=true When updating drivers

Morning, Recently when attempting to update drivers (for chrome or Edge ) I seem to be facing the following issue:

JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Dsun.locale.formatasdefault=true

This is preventing driver update. Does anyone know what this means and how I resolve? (or if there is a worikaround at all)

Edit: Using KS 8.6.8

Thanks all.


Which version of KS are you using?


Its 8.6.8

This is due to the JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS Environmental variables.
I hope this will help you.

Still happening

Thanks, had a read.

I can’t seem to remove that option, I will speak to our IT support team and see if they can help.

If you still facing the same issue.
Download the chrome driver manually and replace the existing chrome driver with the new one

You just delete JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS or _JAVA_OPTIONS from system environment variables of system and restart system and try again.

Could you take a screenshot and share it here so that we can see exactly what sort of errors happened to you.
