What do you mean execute it? Are you trying to run the MSI or load it into a GPO? Make sure that if you copy it, you copy any other files in that same folder.

Ok, I have copied all files and it works. But, I need change the installation folder. I would like change "program files" folder to "c:\java" for example.

Download Orca (http://www.technipages.com/download-orca-msi-editor.html). Install.

Right click on msi and click Open (or edit) with orca. Search for the value below. Change the field to what you want it to be. Save the MSI.

INSTALLDIR=

I've found a lot of "INSTALLDIR" values. Can you tell me which I have to change?
