There is a plethora of information about Java if you use the search function or the packaging kb.

Lilian, I think what you have there is the web-based installer. The '_iftw' gives it away - "Install From The Web."

Get the correct download. It's an EXE which will extract an MSI. Search AppDeploy for recent posts and you'll find a link to it.

llian,

Java is already an MSI, please look in the Package KB for the latest version of Java noted there and see the instructions for finding the java MSI from a temp dir.

If you are looking at disabling updates then search the boards on this site for 'deployment.properties'

Seek and ye shall find,

I found the correct exe file is call "jre-6U16-Windows-i586.exe", I double click and cancel right away, and found JRE1.6.0_16.MSI in :\C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_01\.

but when I click msi file, it say data1.cab fine not exist, so it failed on me.
where I can find data1.cab file?

Lillian,

I've just checked with the same version, and the Data1.cab file is there in:

c:\documents and settings\<userid>\application data\sun\java\jre1.6.0_16

I think you may be looking in the wrong path as you've noted - jre1.6.0_01

Copy both files out, when you find them, and then cancel the installer.

Then try running the msi file from it's new, saved, location.

Thanks,

Lillian,

data1.cab is there in the folder I noted above.

I've just run it again, copied the 2 files out 'jre1.6.0_16.msi' and 'Data1.cab' of the path I stated above.

Ran the MSI from it's new location with the Data1.cab file in the same folder and all works as expected.

Try downloading your source again.. it's definately there and it definately works.

Thanks,

Dunnpy

Just re-read your post - DON'T cancel the installation from the EXE leave it open waiting for you to click next.
Then look in the path and there should be the files there. Copy them out and THEN you can click cancel - once you have the files!

Im trying to deploy jre 1.6.0_x. I have the modifyremove property set to modify. Using SMS 2003, I deploy it.

Whenever I try to deploy the same exe that I built (different package/advertisement) it just uninstalls the product and doesnt reinstall. itself. Is there something Im missing?

Whenever I try to deploy the same exe that I built (different package/advertisement) it just uninstalls the product and doesnt reinstall. itself. When you say "different package", do you mean you have changed the Product Code or Package Code? That's a REALLY bad idea for vendor-supplied MSIs.

Also, it's not strictly polite to hijack a thread and pose what is a completely different question.
