Deploying Java Runtime Environment

Hi guys.

We need to roll out the Java Runtime Environment to 40+ PC's.
I am going to do this through Group Policy.
I am testing this through one PC initially but I cannot get it to go through.

I have created a new Policy and applied it to all sites, but only to a single security group that has one computer in it. The policy is working fine with other things as I can change settings in that policy and they push through to this one PC... except I cannot get the Java Runtime to install.

I've added the Java MSI under Software Installation in Computer Configuration of that Policy and it is set as "Assigned".

But it is not appearing under Add/Remove Programs. I have forced the policy to update many times, resetted etc.

Any ideas what the issue is?

Anything in the eventlog of the client?
Where does the client get the MSI from? What are the permissions to the share and the msi file? Everyone Read?

Worked it out. The computers weren't put in an OU themselves, they were simply put in the default "Computers" Container for the domain.
