Installing Sun Java VM from the command line
Posted on 2003-11-07
I'm desigining an automated client installation for my company using a variety of tools.
I want to get as much software installed on my client PC's as quickly and as automatically as possible.
I'm having problems with the Sun Java VM.
The machines which I'm building dont have a java VM when they're built.
As part of the build process I'm trying to install Sun Java VM (1.4.2) from the command line, and register it as the VM to use within IE6
I already have a commandline to install the VM silently.
"j2re-1_4_2_01-windows-i586.exe /S /v/qn"
This works well.
What I've been unable to do is find a way to register this VM within IE,
either with the command line, or by way of registry hacks
No matter what I try, it seems I cant get IE to see the Sun Java VM
anyone know any way around this?
