Extracting msi from Java 8 Update 121 exe
02/08/2017 42568 views
I am trying to extract the msi from this exe to deploy from a GPO. Previously I would have started the exe install and copied the msi, I can still do this from C:\Users\%username%\AppData\LocalLow\Oracle\Java\jre1.8.0_121 when I did this there were two .msi files jre1.8.0_121patch.msi and au,msi. I have tried adding both of these as a package to deploy from group policy but get the message Add operation failed. Unable to extract deployment information form the package?

That is the correct path. I noticed that, as of Java 8 Update 111, you have to grab the .msi after it extracts but before the install completes. Once the install is done, the .msi is gone from that path. I did this and grabbed a 121 msi, which I have used to create an install package.
If you need it, this site normally does a good job of having a functional .msi
