Install Java with Group Policy
Posted on 2014-02-21
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
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!
