We are in the testing stages of KACE 1000. Looking to purchase soon. Going through the usual software deployments to get a feel for things. I was able to install Java 7u7 (64-bit) silently using "jre-7u7-windows-x64.exe" /s /v "/qn ADDLOCAL=ALL IEXPLORER=1"

We are having problems with the 64bit version of Java and Skillsoft, so I want to install the 32bit version on machines.

Basically what I am looking to do is have a Silent Uninstall of the 64bit version, push that out.

Then have a Silent Install of the 32bit Java.

Appreciate any help I can get here.

run regedit and go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\currentversion\Uninstall

press f3 and search for Java 7, you should find a keyset with Java 7 Update 7 (64bit) listed as DisplayName.  Look at the "UninstallString" for the command to uninstall and add /qn to the end of it.

Create a k1000 script to run the uninstall task first and on success run the other versions install silently

Here is a script that will remove the previous versions of Java and install Java 7 update 11!
