I have a tricky one here. I had a request to spin up 6 virtual desktops using Windows 10 and install
Chrome, Safari and Mozilla. This is in our VMware 5.5 environment. I thought this was going to be routine. I went to java.com and installed latest Java, I think it was 8 or 1.8, java versions and builds are confusing, but it was the latest. The first 2 machines went smooth, when I got to the 3rd machine it would not let me download and kept giving me errors. I used to offline installed and Java appeared to load on all 4 VDIs however, I could not get them to verify. It just hung on a gray screen. I checked programs and saw 2 older versions of Java. in the problem machines. I removed it and even uninstalled version 8 and tried to reinstall with no success. Technically I did my job. If you go to to the programs it appears Java 8 is installed, but if you run verify it just hangs and i am not comfortable releasing these VDIs in this condition. With all the browsers loaded I made sure i was using Internet Explorer and checked all the IE settings and they appear to be the same on the machine that worked and the ones that did not. I am running out of Ideas. Any suggestions on what to check would be appreciated. AND how important is the verify? I am not sure what java is needed for, I just know these are test VDIs and they want to try all browsers for whatever they are developing.
