Enable use to update java without admin rights

Hi,
Is it possible, with a specific local security policy, to allow a user to update java on their Windows 7 pc (which requires admin rights) without actually granting them local administrator rights (that would subsequently allow them to install software etc)
Thanks for help on this one.

i am thinking you may try defining a scheduled task to run the Java update installer at administrative privilege though the end user is not an administrator. be aware that the scheduled task itself must be defined by an administrator. see below the option enable this.

You may extract the required file and unpack to a user accessible folder. See details

use an updater like ninite https://ninite.com/pro and run it on the machine login script

The regular install uses the registry, so the regular (not portable) install must have administrative rights to install.
