Previous to this version I used to script the removal of the updater with "msiexec /qn /x {4A03706F-666A-4037-7777-5F2748764D10}". Does anyone know the ID for Java 7 Update 21 auto Updater version ?

  • It comes off when you uninstall Java 7 update 21. At least mine does when I do it through control panel.

Extract the MSI and get the ProductCode from there.

According to the registry keys that software code is correct.

Normally the uninstall /x sting matches the hive keyset name, but this software has none.

"Publisher"="Sun Microsystems, Inc."
"DisplayName"="Java Auto Updater"

this is for j7u21  see how the keyset matches the uninstall string

"DisplayName"="Java 7 Update 21"

  • Yes, it appears that string still works, just failed on my test subset of PC's for some reason which I will look into, but it worked fine for others. Thanks for your help, pointed me in the right direction.
