when we pushed java we used  these settings.

reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" /v SunJavaUpdateSched /f
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy" /v EnableJavaUpdate /d 00000000 /t REG_DWORD /f
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy" /v NotifyDownload /d 00000000 /t REG_DWORD /f
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy" /v EnableAutoUpdateCheck /d 00000000 /t REG_DWORD /f
setx deployment.expiration.check.enabled false /m

  • thank you for the answer. I couldn't run it in a batch file but , I applied the solution manually and confirmed with another user that the prompt is not showing up anymore. - jencam 3 years ago
