Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login as a learner.
  2. First time the popups appear.
  3. After answering and saving the popup disappears until the next Java update.
  4. Then the game starts new.
  5. So you'll have to use a learner not yet having saved the Settings.


This is expected behavior for the offline player since it uses the java console to run scripts and download the offline player.exe. The only way it is to accept and apply both pop-ups and download the offline player to your local machine. Once it is downloaded this prompt should not appear again.

You could contact Oracle support for addtional information as to why this occurs and you could also submit an enhancement request to the SAP Community to inform our Product Management of this.
