Webstart from Filesystem. Lock on Windows and not able to run offline. even with 1.6.0_18

Hello,
i have a swing-client that should be deployed using webstart both via webserver and filesystem.
when i put the jnlp file and the jars on a windows-server the application starts fine but i cant change it on the windows-server because it is locked which makes it pretty much usless in a CLient-Server context where there are usually updates concerning the client.
Now my question is: is it a generel problem ? is it because of the windows filesystem and is there a way around it ? or do i really need a webserver to make things work ?
also with the new 1.6.0_18 the "offline" problem should have been fixed. I did try, but nope. Starting from the flisystem my application refused to start offline if the original downloadlocation was not available. anyone else having the same problem ?

thank you for replies
