Hi Everyone

We are looking at installing on our corporate machine Sun Java 1.4.2_03 as the standard. I have created a package that I can distribute through ZenWorks to do the installation but I am having a problem with previously installed version. Some of these version could be higher that the version that I am installing. I believe that the current version is 1.4.2_07.

How can I uninstall these other version (older and newer) or do I even want to? I believe that I can run multiple versions at the same time but I am not sure of this as well as what effect this might have. I have looked in IE and the version that was originally installed (which was a higher version) is still being displayed there.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

hi there

I had the same problem, what I did to get around it was to place the following in the "Eun before launching script":

IF EXIST "C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.1_01\bin\java.exe" GOTO EXIST Else
goto End

IF EXIST "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{1666FA7C-CB5F-11D6-A78C-00B0D079AF64}\setup.exe" GOTO UNINST Else
goto COPY

rem this was just incase the uninstall files were not on the local pc
Echo Copying j2re1.4.1_01 Uninstall Files....
XCOPY "\\Install-srv2\VOL1\equip.srv\Users\Equipser\Johan\NAL\Jre 1.4.2_07\Uninstall\*.*" /S /Y /Q "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\*.*"

Goto End
