Step 1: Add New System Variable
A new system variable will need to be added to the user's Window machine.
- Enter "environment variables" in the search.
- Select "Edit the system environment variables" in the results.
- Click on Environment Variables.
- Next, click on the New... button to add a new system variable.
- Enter the following information for the new system variable and then click OK:
Variable Name: JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS
Variable Value: -Dfile.encoding=UTF8
- Click OK to finish saving the change.
- Click OK to exit the System Properties window.
