I'm getting a Certificate Revocation error when installing Java v7u11 as a post install task on my K2000. I am pushing the full installer with the following command

jre-7u11-windows-i586.exe /s ADDLOCAL=ALL IEXPLORER=1 MOZILLA=1 REBOOT=suppress

I have the same code with the exception of file name for the 64 Bit plug in. I didn't have this issue with v7u10 or v7u9 so I am thinking it is an issue with update 11 itself but I'm not sure. Any Ideas or thoughts would be helpful. Thanks.

It looks like this is an issue that pops up from time to time with Java installs as Windows cannot get an answer back about the certificate.  I tested this version and got the same error.  After a little research I found a registry key that can be disabled in order to bypass the certificate requirements.  I made a postinstall task to turn this key off:

reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v CertificateRevocation /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

I would probably make another to turn this setting back on as I am not sure the full ramifications moving forward.

Also, here is the command line I use for java, which includes disabling the updaters:

jre-7u11-windows-i586.exe /s AgreeToLicense=YES IEXPLORER=1 MOZILLA=1 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 JU=0

Hopefully that helps.

  • Andrew_Lubchansky's Method worked for me for Java7update 25, I ran this as a post installation task in Windows environment prior to installing Java.
