JRE install without plugin

is it possible to do a silent install of SUN's jre in such a way that it doesnot register the new JRE with Iexplorer?

I tried:
jre-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe /QN ADDLOCAL=ALL SYSTRAY=0 EULA=0 IEXPLORER=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 JU=0 REBOOT=ReallySuppress

but when I check in IE, it still knows about the new JRE.

I install it with the param IEXPLORER=0 and works.
Maybe you're using too many params... try just the IEXPLORER and then add some more the see the behavior (or register only the mozilla plugin)

The machine I'm testing this on, has no JRE on it, I tried the following
jre-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe /s IEXPLORER=0

when I then open IE, and go to internet options/advanced,
Use JRE 1.6.0_12 for <applet> (requires restart)
is checked.

Windows XP SP2 and IE6 had a bug on this but not after SP2...

Try this:
jre-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe /s ADDLOCAL=jrecore,extra  IEXPLORER=0  MOZILLA=0

If doesn't work probably bug or maybe the environment you're installing is already "dirt" due your tries and IE always getting access to JRE now..

not sure why its not working for us.

The work around decided on is to just copy the jre files to a folder somewhere and set the path to point to this each time we want to run the app in a particular JRE.

Thanks anyway
