Updating Java 6_30 to Java 7_17

03/12/2013 3857 views

Ive searched these boards up and down and have tried many different options offered here but just cannot get Java 7 update 17 to install while at the same time remove Java 6 Update 30.

Currently Im using this .bat

taskkill /F /IM iexplorer.exe
taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe
taskkill /F /IM javaw.exe
taskkill /F /IM jqs.exe
taskkill /F /IM jusched.exe
MsiExec.exe /X{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83216033FF} /qn
taskkill /F /IM iexplorer.exe
taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe
taskkill /F /IM javaw.exe
taskkill /F /IM jqs.exe
taskkill /F /IM jusched.exe
msiexec.exe /i jre1.7.0_17.msi /qn
exit

This does install Version 7 update 17 but it does not remove the old version 6 Update 30. Can anyone tell me what I am missing here?

Thanks in advance.

Java is really bollocks, its not a real MSI. Its a EXE repacked into a MSI with custom actions. Have a look here, I had some issues as well: http://www.itninja.com/question/java-1-6u30

Would sugguest having a look with basic UI (/qb) on to see whats going.

 

Good luck, R.

The above approach in a production environment is not recommondalble as it is terminating the generic processes like

jusched.exe
iexplore.exe
javaw.exe
jqs.exe

... To answer you question..

Did you try with the following command

Start /wait msiexec /x {26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83216033FF} /qn
