Console should now launch successfully.

Second option:

1. Create a new directory on %SYSTEMDRIVE% (I.e. C:\java_cache)
2. Navigate to %SYSTEMDRIVE%/Users/%USERID%/AppData/LocalLow/Sun/Java/Deployment
3. Open the depoloyment.properties file in a text editor.
4. Add this line:


5. Save the file and exit.
6. Attempt to start the console

Console should launch.

Either option will work fine.  The second option prevents downloading the Java Application each time it is launched because it will be stored locally. 
Additional Information:
CA/Broadcom has opened a ticket with Oracle to get this resolved.  If you are unable to make the changes to java settings due to corporate policies, please downgrade java to a previous 1.8 minor release.
