Java: FileOutputStream(“NUL:”) not working after Java upgrade

On Windows, NUL is the null output device similar to /dev/null on Linux. With Oracle Java 8 Update 331, trying to get a new FileOutputStream(“NUL:”) throws an exception.

Windows AD unable to reset password from code

From code trying to reset AD user password and using the same  password further to login from other services.

Neither userPassword nor unicodePwd attributes

Yet, I am unable to edit my system environment variables (also pictured). Any suggestions for

Java creates temp folder with shortened path and throws ‘Not found’ exception when trying to access files placed in it

so I did run into one very weird issue. The idea is simple: create temp dir, place some files in it and then try to access them. Now the problem is that calling File.createTempDir() or Files.createTempDirectory(prefix) creates new file inside AppData/Local/temp with shortened path, so the full path to folder looks something like C:/Users/FirstNam~1/AppData/Local/Temp/myFolder/myFile.txt instead of C:/Users/FirstName LastName/AppData/Local/Temp/myFolder.myFile.txt. The difference

Intellij Idea fails to start with VPN enabled

I am having a trouble with launching Intellij Idea Ultimate Edition 2021.1.2 (also tried 2020.3.1) with VPN enabled (I am using GlobalProtect) on Windows 10.
