I recently moved all my Java installations from C:\Program Files\Java to D:\Java, as my C:\ partition only had a few MB of free space left and windows kept on bugging me about it. I also edited every registry entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft that pointed to the old directory to now point to the new one. Then changed the PATH variables and removed the old files, did a restart, and all Java applications work just fine.

Yet, Chrome is the only application that seems to have a problem with what I did, as the Java Plugin isn't recognized any more.

Are there any registry entires I may have missed? Maybe in the Chrome registry? How can I make this work again?

why don't you try reinstalling chrome. – Deb Jul 11 '12 at 8:43
Because I figure there has to be a way without reinstalling anything and I want to find it – Florian Peschka Jul 11 '12 at 9:12
