Where does javaw.exe live on a standard Vista installation?

I believe;

C:\Program Files\Java\jre[version number]\bin

The Java Runtime Environment file javaw.exe (which is the non-windowed version of java.exe) is located at:

C:\Program Files\Java\jre[version]\bin\javaw.exe

In my case, I've got 5 folders in my Java folder, each a different version:

jre1.6.0

jre1.6.0_03

jre1.6.0_05

jre1.6.0_07

jre6

It's in usually c:\user\your-username\AppData\LocalLow\Java\

Search for the current version and copy/paste it to your desired location.

    This both contradicts the other answers and does not work on my system... I also recommend you do not copy Java binaries (such as javaw.exe) into random folders. – Bob Jun 4 '12 at 7:42
