Link to the message receieved from Java installer http://i.imgur.com/gujOY.png

I received a message stating that "the application listed are currently running and must be closed to allow the install to proceed" "jqs.exe" when trying to silently install Java 6 Update 29. The message pops up on machines with internet explorer opened, or java is being used by another applications. Can someone please tell me where I went wrong, and what I can change in order to make my install more silent. Is IEXPLORER=1 needed?

The machines I am updating are all running Windows XP 32 bit.

I ran the following:

echo off
start C:\support\jre-6u29-windows-i586-s.exe /s IEXPLORER=1 REBOOT=SUPRESS JAVAUPDATE=0 SYSTRAY=0 >c:\support\it\install_java.log

had the same issue.IEXPLORER=1 didn't work for me so what i did was create a script to kill the process if it is running before the install runs and wrapped it in a wise script. All of my installs were successful to 25k machines.

firstly you might want to extract the embedded msi from the exe installer and work with that (it goes to the %APPDATA% folder when running the exe I believe). Secondly, have a look at MSI 4.0 's restart manager controls (see here)
