I am wondering if anyone has figured out how to disable the auto-update feature of the latest Java releases (v7 update 11 & 13). I would like to be able to disable the auto-update feature using KACE so I don't have to go to each machine. I tried the registry hack that is in the following link: https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=2488735&tstart=0 and it did not work. We are using KACE to auto-install Java updates so we don't need the auto-update feature of Java enabled. Thanks in advance.

Answer Summary:
Thanks everyone! I ended up creating a MST file that sets the following: JAVAUPDATE=0 JU=0 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0

Why don't you create a transform around the installation MSI? Very very easily done and it bypasses the pesky exe command line parameters.

Hi Sburkey2,

modify the installation with the following flags: JAVAUPDATE=0 vlag

This will disable the auto update.

You need to deinstall and reinstall if the modification of the registry don't work.

Kind regards

I use this as one of my script tasks is KACE:

Delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run!SunJavaUpdateSched from the registry.
