Installing Java using Windows GPO

Hello:

I want to install Java using Windows 2008 client software policies. Is there any way to do this using GPO?

Thank you.

Yep. Download the offline java installer. Execute it but let it sit at the first prompt. Search your computer for files ending with .msi. Put the jre msi in a computer side software installation.

check out appdeploy.com for more info.

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?
