I've been trying to push out Java 6.0.11 to WinXP clients via GPO for several days now. The problems I am experiencing are a bit different than those I've read about here and elsewhere. The installation itself appears to work OK - no hangs or error messages - but when I go to test Java I am finding that IE 7 reports that Java is not installed. When I check Firefox there is no problem.

In IE I have made sure that Java is activated in Advanced Options, have cleared the cache (repeatedly) and have checked out the Java control panel to make all appears to be correct.

I found that Java downloaded and installed directly onto my test machine does run as expected.

I compared registry entries with a second test machine where Java was downloaded directly, installed and functions as expected. Found a few differences but changing the registry on first test machine to mimic the registry on the second machine did not solve the problem.

I also tried a few suggestions from elsewhere on appdeploy.com.

So far, nothing seems to help. I am guessing that some file is failing to register properly when the installed is pushed by GPO.

Has anyone had any similar experiences? Suggestions anyone?

My bad!

I found the problem. A transform set EULA=1 in the Properties table when it should be equal to 0.
