I am trying to deploy JAVA 7 update 25 on our around 100 workstations with users without admin rights. During the install (silent install), Windows prompt for an administrator password. 

Is it possible to install without admin rights or add admin/pw information on the installation command?

btw, i am really new to KACE

Managed installs use the LocalSystem account to install software and that doesn't have admin rights.  You may have to switch to an online kscript.

create a new online kscript. My example is linked to the labe M_SL_New_Systems which contains all new machines which need initial software installed.

This script need to run as admin: 

(Leave all unselected to deploy to all operating systems.)
Windows Run As
  •  Local System 
  •  Logged-in user 
  •  All logged-in users 
  •  User:     Password:  

Upload both java install files as dependencies and set the script up as follows:


  1. Verify that the directory “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)” exists.

On Success

  1. Launch “$(KACE_SYS_DIR)\cmd.exe” with params “/c wmic product where ”name like 'java%%'“ call uninstall”.
  2. Launch “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\JRE8u40x32.exe” with params “/s”.
  3. Launch “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\jre-8u40-windows-x64.exe” with params “/s”.
