My game launches successfully when I execute it via the jnlp file but via the desktop shortcut I get the following exception:

Any idea why it doesn't work?

I've found a similar reported bug in Java 6 but it doesn't seem to be the same problem:

Shortcut installation unfortunately does not work with a relative file codebase attribute. It seem that webstart does not cache the application when loaded from a file URL.

Yes, I just figured out that it's due to a path not found by JWS. In the code above the base path is from my drive D and JWS launches the app from drive C but the path is relative to the root.
