So with the recent updates to Java we have seen an increasing aggressiveness in warning users of unsigned applications, or if their Java installation is outdated. I am curious if anybody has contended with this, and if there any avenues to configure the installation against this behavior.

In particular, the prompting that Java is outdated. It will then notify the user that they should download and install the update, something we prefer the K1 to do. This prompt is unwelcome, and is causing confusing for our users. Derp.

We are seeing this as well, but this happens on users profile created after the Java 7.11 install. And Any of the users that already had their profiles on the machiens are now getting the prompt.

  • In case of Java Certificates, export them and add them in the trusted root for all users.
    certutil.exe -addstore "TrustedPublisher" <xyz.cer>

    Configure this in your package.
    • Under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy] what does UpdateMin do? Does that check for a Minimum version?
