Java RE - Installing 32-bit version on 64-bit system
I'm having a problem setting up Managed Installations for Java RE (the latest 7u5 but had the same issue with previous versions such as 6u31, etc). I create my MI and am using the /s switch for silent installation. The 32-bit version installs to 32-bit systems just fine. The 64-bit version installs to 64-bit systems just fine. When I target the 32-bit version to 64-bit systems the MI will fail. If I manually run the 32-bit version with the /s switch on a 64-bit machine it will install so there must be something specifically with the MI setup. Any ideas? If you have other means you are using to deploy both 32/64 bit Java RE to your 64-bit systems I would be interested to hear that as well. Thanks.
I've discovered I can push the 32-bit installer out via script as a batch file to 64-bit machines and it works. So I'll do MI for 32 to 32 and 64 to 64. Then I'll target a script for 32 to 64. Done and done.
