Software Deployment Question

Oracle Java new version this time 1.6_31

04/20/2012 8065 views

When I deploy a new Java version I change the following settings in the MSI

standardsetting => newsetting

IEOPEN 0 => 1
JU 0 => 1
MODYFYREMOVE modyfy => remove
RebootYesNo Yes => No
SYSTRAY 1 => 0

This works ok, but fails if IE is started resulting the install to retry
IE is started by logon so it is running almost any time, I know I could get arund this,  but I would like to hear what You usely do

in this common senario

The IEOPEN setting = 0 or 1  will that be an other option given that IE is running during install

I've deployed it, but didnt have IE launching from login... in your shoes I would probably just run a script first to kill IE, using whatever deployment system you've got to sequence the script before the install.

  • I deploy using SCCM, I have a Script that could be used for Killing a running process, before install but I just thought it was a little hard action to do, someone could lose data in the process.

Check for any custom action that tries to see if IE is open or not and disable from the sequence.

Hello Sweede,

first you could - as already mentioned - stop the IE-process
(e. g. using taskkill).

But more important is this article from Oracle, telling that since
update the options 'ADDLOCAL', 'IEXPLORE' and
'MOZILLA' are deprecated:



What is 'MODYFYREMOVE modyfy => remove' and why
shouldn't users see the Java-Symbol in the systemtray?

Thank you!

Sweede : Where did you found the msi file? Because when I go to the java website, only exe files are available...
