Software Deployment Question
Custom settings with deployment of Java JRE 7.40
Heyas. So I am applying a transform on the new msi bits for JRE 7.40 and I have already turned off most of the properties we needed off (autoupdatecheck=0, iexplorer=1, javaupdate=0,JU=0, rebootyesno=no and etc.
My issue now after testing , is that this new verison puts this icon in the start menu . Does anyone know of a switch to disable this addition or a way I can remove it? I am using adminstudio 11.5 sp2 with installshield spring 2012
thank you much

You can add a Custom Action (1122) to your Transform file, where you run this command:
cmd.exe /C rmdir "%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Java" /S
to remove the Start Menu shortcuts. In the InstallUIExecuteSequence table you set the Sequence ID of this Custom Action to '3183'. Which is then between the InstallJava custom action (3181), which apparently create these shortcuts, and InstallFinalize (3185).
