Hi ,

While uninstalling Java 6 Standard Edition silently it is showing "Java Setup-Close Application",it is becoz of jqs.exe(java quick start service) even I tried killing the exe..but it is not uninstalling.When I open Internet explorer and uninstall Java,I face this issue.It is asking for the User to check mark "Quit the appliactions listed"..only then complpete uninstallation happens.If anyone knows the solution to kill the exe in msi/mst please reply back...it is a bit urgent

A script that kills both JQS and IE should do the trick.

Hi

Use the script given below.I had packaged Java 6 a few days before and the script worked for me.

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colListOfServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Service Where Name = 'JavaQuickStarterService'")
For Each objService in colListOfServices
objService.StopService()
objService.Delete()
Next


regards,

Gary, in my testing, killing JQS was not enough. If IE was open, the uninstall would still pop the warning box.

There is a custom action which is responsible for opening that window at the time of uninstallation."FileInUseDialog" is the custom action which is responsible so delete that custom action it will not check the opened things at the time of uninstallation

I would never recommend deleting a CA. Rather, just apply an impossible-to-meet condition on its execution. I normally use '0=1' :)

Hi folks,
right now, we use a log off first to make it rock solid.
But the way to go for the future, is to remove this stupid thing from the installation.
