MS16-104 Security Update for IE Breaks EBS JRE Download

Microsoft IE LogoMS16-104: Security update for Internet Explorer: September 13, 2016 (KB3185319) breaks the JRE (oaj2se.exe) download function in Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2. This issue occurs with IE 11 on Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.

Expected behaviour: If an end-user does not have the required JRE plug-in release installed on their desktop client, a dialog box appears, asking whether they wish to download it from the EBS server. When the end-user confirms the download, the oaj2se.exe file downloads and runs.

Incorrect behaviour after the installation of KB3185319: When the end-user confirms the download via the dialog box, oaj2se.exe (the JRE) will not download.

How to fix this problem

Microsoft has published separate fixes for this issue for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.  The appropriate patch must be installed on all affected end-user desktop clients:

Temporary workaround

If an end-user has installed KB3185319 but is unable to install the fix, end-users may work around the problem by entering the file's URL in Internet Explorer's address bar.  For example:
