Automatic Update - deployment.properties problems with JRE 1.6.0_05

This is a Automatic Updated daisable problem.
I have change the update policy values in the registry but still have one more problem :

I want to deploy JRE 1.6.0_05, in earlier versions ie 1.4 there has been a windows\sun\java\deployment where the initian deployment.properties file is located. But in the 1.6.X ther is no such folder and the deployment.properies file is still "copied" when you start ie "javacpl.exe" . I would like to disable the
choice "Download JRE automatically" in the javacpl.exe to "Never download..." but the initial choice when the file deployment.properties is created is "alway download..." .
Am I still save only with the registry key changes, or do I have to change the value in the deployment.properies and if so, where is the "original" copy that copies the file into C:\Document and Settings\[user]\Application data\Sun\Java\Deployment\

manekin... [/align]

Have you tried these arguments:

Note the JU=0 and JAVAUPDATE=0
I know that this works with 5 installers.

This is what I can find for 6, use the same commandline but also, you can include a systemwide deployment.config

The system wide deployment.properties file just doesn't seem to do anything for 1.6.0_05.
I put the deployment.config file in the %WINDIR%\Sun\Java\Deployment folder along with the deployment.properties file. Using FileMon.exe I can see that both files are being read when the Control Panel applet is being opened, but the settings I set do not seem to be applied.
The settings I am trying to set are these:

I'm beginning to think that the Control Panel is for user-specific settings, and as long as the user doesn't open it, Java will use the system wide settings. The fact is, the user's deployment.properties file is never created unless they open the Control Panel applet. It's just hard to prove this theory.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
