I have followed all the above mentioned steps for download and installation of jce and have also extracted the jar files to the proper directory but still running a program gives runtime exceptions like:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
at javax.crypto.Cipher.getInstance(DashoA13*..)
at SimplePolicyTest.main(
Caused by: java.lang.SecurityException: Cannot set up certs for trusted CAs
at javax.crypto.SunJCE_b.(DashoA13*..)

Caused by: java.lang.SecurityException: Cannot locate policy or framework files!

I'm getting the same error. I tried to install on my work computer but I got a even more confusing error. If you manage to fix it let me know.
