Java 8 Update 101 MSI Extraction - I don't get a Welcome screen. Java just installs
This has been happening for the last few Java 8 updates. When I run the setup executable, it creates the ..\LocalLow\Oracle\Java folder, but it becomes a race against time because the installer is running and the folder will be removed when it completes. I don't like this. I'm guessing there is a setting somewhere that's causing the installation to run silently. I've deleted the 64-bit and 32-bit JavaSoft keys under HKLM. I've removed every Sun and Oracle folder I can find under %AppData%, but the installation keeps running silently. What else might it be.
With Update 101, I decided to just deploy using the .EXE, but that's creating its own set of issues.
normally it should nt be a problem... but if you are really having issue, and you are running on win7 or higher, the full MSI is "cached" in the local installer directory. It's hidden by default, and gets a random name. You should be able to tell bý the modified / creation date which one you are looking for, if not you hover over the files with the mouse until you get to see the one you are looking for..
