Hey,

trying to package this but the fact that its all custom actions calling DLLs is making life difficult for me... I need to edit the deployment.properties file in the APPDATAFOLDER, and make it the same for all users.

Any ideas?

I just setup capture Java. It captures just fine with Wise and then you can make your changes to it easily. I have not done 1.4.2.04 but every engine I have tried below 1.4.2.01 has worked perfectly. Ok maybe not because some of the 1.3.1 engines do not play nice together as they like to regress the system default Java engine.

yeah, i started with a setup capture originally but soon realised that I was capturing an MSI, which goes against all best practices. Although if i dont find a solution soon, I might be forced into using setup capture !

Yeah it's a big no no but in reality it's the end result that matters. When you setup capture a MSI it's not a big deal as long as you do not capture the MSI specific regisistry entries and anything in the Windows Installer cache. The default exclusion lists for Wise 4.6+ and probably a few other products cover this.

Some people may disagree with capturing a MSI but when the vendor gives you junk you gotta tailor it somehow. I personally don't think the Java MSI counts as a real MSI. It just installs some zip files and uses custom actions to install the product (last time I checked). Sounds more like a legacy installer to me...

Yeah I agree with you there. I'd never seen an MSI like the Java one before, plus it comes with a 1033.mst(english) transform, so basically I was ending up writing custom actions in my new transform that overwite/append to files added when the zip files are unpacked.

I'm looking for a way to preset cache location and size for JRE 1.4.1_02 (pre-msi) for allusers. Has anyone found a way of doing this?

If it's the same as version 1.5, I think that you can create or edit this file:

"[AppDataFolder]Sun\Java\Deployment\deployment.properties"

You need to add or edit the following lines:

deployment.cache.max.size=100m
deployment.user.cachedir=D\:\\SomeFolder\\AnOtherFolder

yeah, edit the deployment.properties file as WiseUser has pointed out. it's fairly handy.
