Install Java with Group Policy

Experts,

I am trying to deploy the Java 7.x msi  using group policy. After downloading the exe from java.com, I double click it, and do not continue with the installation. I navigate to:

Windows Vista and Windows 7
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\jre<version_number>

And find the msi file. When I try to check this msi file into GPO, I get

add operation failed unable to extract deployment information from the package. run validation on the package

If I copy the same msi file locally to a PC and try to run it, I get:

The installation package could not be opened. contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package.

Could someone clarify the correct steps needed to install Java with Group policy.

Thank you in advance!

You will actually want to download the install from the JRE website and extract it that way. Here is how I do it:

The version which you have downloaded is x64 bit or x32 bit? That could also cause issues for you?

Have you done steps as given below?

Thanks for the reply everyone. When I modify the msi and then double click to test, I get:

add operation failed unable to extract deployment information from the package. run validation on the package

So I viewed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONRzrODglKk  and did a test and it updated the endpoint via group policy with no modification to the msi.

Is there any concern by not modifying the msi?
