Hey folks, I having a problem when run this command line to install Java application offline:

 start /w jre-8u5-windows-i586.exe /s "/passive /norestart JAVAUPDATE=0 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 JU=0" 

Anyone know how to solve it? or any other method?

Always, always, always, always, always, always use explicit paths in script! So 'start /w [path_to_EXE]jre-8u5...etc.

Personally, I wouldn't use the EXE but the extracted MSI with a transform. Why? By default, you won't trurn off the idiotic up-to-dateness check that JRE has been doing since 1.7 by using AUTOUPDATECHECK=0.

See here for details of what you need to do with post 1.7 JREs:
