I am used a scripted install to roll out Win7, Office 2010, Adobe Reader and Java. Java needs an internet connection to install. We use a Proxy Server and I need to be able to change Internet Connection Proxys Server Settings so that the scripted image I deploy can access the internet straight away without manual intervention. Is the a way of doing this with a post install task?

Thanks in advance

I have seen people use reg files to do this, and kick it off with "regedit.exe /s filename.reg"

Here is a Microsoft kb on how to set up the file. Hope that helps.

We use the standalone Java installers as post installation tasks and do not have a problem. Are you sure you are using the standalone redistributable java?

Create a registry file with below settings. (change the ip of the proxy server)
This will set and enable the proxy.

A better way is to use the autodetect settings in your dhcp.
So you doesnt have to set the proxy manual.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
