Have two question.

1. This is the scenario, I have deploy latest Java update to about 40 computers. Installation works fine, BUT when a computer got Java installed it`s keep start over the installation again when the computer check in to K1000. This is a annoying problem when you deploy to many computer at the sametime. Why can`t K1000 see that a successfully installation is done, and don`t start the installation again ?

2. Trying to run this Java uninstall setup under Script in K1000: /X I{32A3A4F4-B792-11D6-A78A-00B0D0180250} /qn /norestart. It`s seems work, script is successfully deployed, but Java is still there on the computer and not uninstalled?

Many thx for answers!

  • How did you create the managed install for Java? Is it associated with the software title for that version?

Bat-script: start jdk-8u31-windows-i586.exe /quiet
Then I have zip it with latest Java exe-version.

  • After the managed install runs does Java (8 u31) show up as installed on the target system? Normally there is a disjunct between the managed install and the software item that causes KACE to not see it as installed.
    • and since you are running a batch file you can a line to "runkbot 4 0" and force inventory after the install
    • Yes it does, it shows up.
      • But the managed install doesn't show that it was installed?
  • Are you using a custom inventory rule? It looks like you are. If so then something isn't triggering right on your rule. Also - your install is working - but you don't need to zip up and run a batch script for a single installer file. If you attach it to the inventory record and leave "default installation" you can just enter your switches under "additional parameters"...for ex. /quiet. Just an FYI...maybe less work but everyone's got their own way of doing things!

part 2 the java uninstall does not look like that on my machine(you also have an I before the {).  for 32bit java 8U25 uninstall would be like
MsiExec.exe /X {26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83218025F0} /qn.  What shows under the hklm\software\microwsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\  go to this key set and search for "java", find the one set that is fully populated with keys and look at the uninstall key there.
