Is there anyway to create an unattended script that will run an Executable Jar File? The install.jar file will run and bring up a user interface which I would like to make unantended. The Jar file currently has no command line arguments available that would provide a silent or unantended type install. Capture of installation in not vendor supported, Autoit is somwhat problemattic as the buttons do not have any keys associated with them, ect..

If its just a matter of copying the file into a directory and then having it executed, you could do this with with a bat/cmd file and just add it to startup.

And I would not recommend performaing a capture/repackage of a java script install or app.

HI ,

You can run a jar file using below command.

java -jar filename.jar

but Java version to be installed already in the machine with java environment set . In order to run the jar file in unattended mode ,it depends on how developer of jar file created it.

u can try above command ... if no luck capture the install as Jmaclaurin...
