[Fixed] VLC Portable: "Java not found" error when I play a Blu-Ray

When I tried to play a Blu-ray disc with VLC, I was informed that VLC could not find Java and so it could not display the disc's menu. This is despite me having Java Portable available.

I did some digging and found that the reason for this is that the PortableApps Launcher for VLC was not coded to expose Java Portable to VLC. After noticing this, I added the required lines to the config files then re-compiled the Launcher EXE and tried VLC again. After I did this, VLC was able to play the disc's menu.

Thus, may I request that the following lines be added to a future version of VLC Portable?

appinfo.ini
[Dependencies]
UsesJava=true

VLCPortable.ini
[Activate]
Java=find

Added in VLC Portable 3.0.7

Support added in 3.0.7

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
