Default JD2 on OpenJDK 16.0.2 - working fine

FYI - running JD2 #44732 on latest OpenJDK 16.0.2 without noteable functional issues so far.

tested env. Windows Server 2019, W10 21H1

Several GUI issues (Font Sizing, Tooltips, File Dialogs) with previous OpenJDK 16.0.1 are resolved.

Feel free to test using temp env variables
1) Download: jdk.java.net/16/ and unpack
2) Set Java Home temporarily in CMD / Powershell or Device Manager for permanent setting
CMD: set JAVA_HOME=C:\JD2\openjdk-16.0.2_windows-x64_bin\jdk-16.0.2
PS: $Env:JAVA_HOME=C:\JD2\openjdk-16.0.2_windows-x64_bin\jdk-16.0.2
Device Manager:
Right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the Advanced tab.
Click the Environment Variables tab.
Set the variables in the System Variables box.
3) run JD2
CMD: JDownloader2.exe
PS: & .\JDownloader2.exe
Open Explorer with Explorer

Have Fun!

You can also use other java providers, see

You can skip system installation of Java in Step 2 and just place the Java folder somewhere and then create a shortcut to JDownloader.jar and change the location to include
c:/pathto/...javaw.exe -jar JDownloader.jar
