Hi All

I've scoured the web and appdeploy for the best way to create an msi for java so that I can deploy it across the network through AD. I think I've followed all the various solutions provided properly but java will still not install for me on to the pc. I'm at a bit of a loss. I'm not sure if the server is pushing out the package properly or not. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. What are the possible ways to find where the problem lies?

Check the Application Event Log on a computer that you have tried to deployed Java to.

Hey Northerly,

I have just encountered the same problem as you. I initially tried deploying the MSI and MST that is wrapped in the exe but found it only created an entry in add-remove programs but not actually install. I got it working by using WISE Install Tailor to create my own MST. Second to that I had to change a public property in the MST (SUPPORTDIR) to C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_01 or else it wouldnt add into AD. I again used WISE install editor to do this but I imagine you could just as easily use orca. I have found doing this will enable the msi to install correctly either on a clean pc or update an existing pervious version. Anyways if you still have problems leave a message and I can either give you further direction or email you my mst.

Cheers

Ben

Hi :)

When you run the JRE setup (exe) filer ... it creates and "msi-installation" i a subfolder in C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp

.... so you (when the setup is still running) find the folder and makes a copy of it .... inside it you have a msi witch you can deploy through your AD :)
