Hello!

I have the following problem with the new JRE 1.06 (the JRE 1.5.0.10 seems to have the same prob):
It doesn't matter whether I change the necessary properties with ORCA to create an MST or start the setup with parameters (AUTOUPDATECHECK, JAVAUPDATE, etc.), I just can't turn off the automatic updates during the setup (manually and GPO).
The associated registry entries (HKLM/...) are definitely changed after the setup, but the problem is that these settings are no longer used to setup the automatic updates in either way - the critical setting is now placed under "HKCU/Software/JavaSoft/Java Update/Policy" in the binary key "EnableAutoUpdateCheck" with a hex value.
So far I have no solution for this issue.

Beay,

Current_User settings in a multiple user environment, or in an environment where you deployment tool installs applicaitons in the system context is a little tricky.

Active Setup is the easiest solution - it only involves adding - 1 registry key and 1 value called "stubpath" (you can add more)

Look here for a complete write up(or almost complete):
http://www.etlengineering.com/installer/activesetup.txt

I'm not sure if the article states this, but once the active setup has run for a user - it creates the same key that you will create in HKLM, in the same location under the HKCU - if you ever need it to run again for that user, just delete that key in HKCU.

If this doesn't help, just let me know and I can write an explanation of Active Setup, but i'm trying to avoid that...
