Java 8 Update 25 Can't install to default path, always getting the "static" path
12/10/2014 11290 views
I'm having issues with my Java 8 package. The usual default path for Java installations C:\Program Files\Java\jreN (N being version, obviously so jre6, jre7, jre8 etc)
But mine is installing in STATIC mode even though I do not specify it anywhere. Whatever I try it goes in C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_25
I work with the extracted MSI. I've forced the property to 0, Disable (tried both), still won't install in jre8.
I've tried with the offline EXE just to test, same result, even when I use a CFG file in the command line (jre-8u25-windows-i586 /INSTALLCFG=pathtomyfile.cfg. I know it's reading my file because i used the INSTALL_SILENT=Enable in this file and it work perfectly. Yet STATIC=Disable or STATIC=0 does nothing, it installs in the STATIC path no matter what I try.
Any ideas what might be wrong?
Thanks in advance for any help
