JRE issue

This concerns deployment of jre 1.4.2_06.

What happens is when deployed to a PC using Altiris, jre appears to install correctly but seems to miss some key registry components. These show up when browsing to a specific web link and the app wont run.

But if I manually run the Java/Sun supplied MSI, as in double-click the MSI and click each and every button, it installs perfectly. I've scoured the registry for Java related discrepancies, and only come across a handful. In each case, after importing them, the app still does not run.

Any other ideas? Is there a better tool to use than Ashampoo/Easy Clean? Anybody know how to use Wise Package Studio as a registry compare tool?

Thanks much for any input!

Issue affects only HKCU keys, by any chance?
If yes, the route you might want to take is to set up self-healing inside the .msi package, which is an entire topic on its own.

It only affects HKCurrentConfig; HKLM and HKUsers.

I ended up making progress by going backwards. [8|] Instead of pulling the MSI out of the exe, I just scripted an install with the exe to manually click the buttons and that works. [:)]
