Java Deployment

Hi all,

I run a predepoyment task to remove old versions of Java and then deploy the new version as msi
@ECHO OFF
cls
TITLE Uninstalling Java 5-8 and Java fx. . .

wmic product where "name like 'Java 7%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive
wmic product where "name like 'Java 8%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive
wmic product where "name like 'JavaFX%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive
wmic product where "name like 'Java(TM) 7%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive
wmic product where "name like 'Java(tm) 6%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive
wmic product where "name like 'Java(TM) 8%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive
wmic product where "name like 'J2SE Runtime Environment%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive
goto END

:END
exit

Works OK, but on some PC's the computer reboots...not good when the user is engaged with work :)

Anyway to suppress reboots in wmic?

Hi, you cannot get the Win32_Product class to uninstall with reboot suppression, as it doesn't support any switches.  There can be issues with enumerating the Win32_Product class anyway, so I'd stay away from it.

You would be better to enumerate the registry for any installations of Java, and run their associated UninstallString commands, to which you can add /qn /norestart switches.

The following is a VBS script that you can use to do this.

Regards,

Rob.

On Error Resume Next
Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "cmd /c TASKKILL /IM Java2.exe", 0, True
arrKeys = Array("SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall", "SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall")
Set objRegistry = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=Impersonate}!\\.\root\default:StdRegProv")
For Each strKey In arrKeys
	objRegistry.EnumKey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKey, arrSubKeys
	If Not IsNull(arrSubKeys) Then
		For Each strSubKey In arrSubKeys
			objRegistry.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKey & "\" & strSubKey, "DisplayName", strDisplayName
			objRegistry.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKey & "\" & strSubKey, "DisplayVersion", strDisplayVersion
			objRegistry.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKey & "\" & strSubKey, "UninstallString", strUninstallString
			If (InStr(1, strDisplayName, "Java", vbTextCompare) Or InStr(1, strDisplayName, "J2SE", vbTextCompare)) And Trim(strUninstallString) <> "" Then
				objShell.Run "cmd /c start /wait ""Java Uninstall"" " & Replace(strUninstallString, "/I", "/X") & " /qn /norestart", 0, True
			End If
			strDisplayName = vbEmpty
			strDisplayVersion = vbEmpty
			strUninstallString = vbEmpty
		Next
	End If
Next

Oh, note that the above script only enumerates the Wow6432Node of the registry, and so only uninstalls 32 bit software.  To search for 64 bit software, remove the Wow6432Node key from that string.
