Java 8u51 installation doubts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I have been spending a lot of time trying to find how to better install JRE 8u51 but no successfull so far...

    I'm preparing a new MDT image and basically I need to install JRE 8u51 silent and to the maximum level possible ensuring that JRE will no be auto-updated and also that no any kind of new version available message will appear to the user.

    After the search I think that the best option is to use the .msi and the parameters:


    unfortunatelly Java doesn't provide the .msi and what's more, Java says you should not obtain it from the .exe because it will not work fine (at least this web ensures that:http://www.klaus-hartnegg.de/gpo/msi_java8.html).

    If I use the command line installation jre-8u51-windows-i586.exe AUTO_UPDATE=0   

    is this equivalent to the .msi parameters JU=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0  ?

    I just want the users not to be bothered by Java update messages.

    I know this is not the Java forum but Oracle forums are not easy to understand.

    Thank you very much for your support!

  • Hi JavierSA,

    Thank you for your question.

    I think you could do it without any problems. jre-8u51-windows-i586.exe AUTO_UPDATE=0  

    is this equivalent to the .msi parameters JU=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0.

    If there are any questions regarding this issue, please be free to let me know.

    Best Regard,
