Software Question

Has anyone been able to turn off Automatic Java Update on 32 & 64 bit machines? We have multiple OS: XP, 7, Server

08/01/2013 3601 views

I've created a couple test files to make sure the script works. My first test was on a 64 bit machine as of right now it works fine with no problems. The problem I'm having right now is that I have a 32 bit computer that's running XP and when "RUN" the script it seem like it does something else and the value is the same, but Kace will tell me the script was successfully completed.

  • Can you share the script?

Once you extract the MSI, you can use the following installation command to do a few things, including disabling autoupdate:

msiexec /i "jre1.7.0_25.msi" REBOOT=ReallySuppress AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 JU=0 EULA=0 ALLUSERS=1 /l*v "%temp%\Java 7u25 install.log" /qb-

Obviously, this is for update 25, but should work for update 21 as well.

The thing to check would be if the script is taking into account the different folder structures between 7 and XP, and different versions of Java as they all have slightly different ways the Autoupdate is controled.

you can also update the Deployment.properties file

the file location differs between Windows XP and Windows 7
