I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

With Java 8.21 and higher you can use the EXE and some switches that will work.
I normally install both 32 & 64 Bit version.

Her is my batch file that I use:

"\\fileserver\Data\IT\_Release\Oracle_Java\jrei586.exe"  INSTALL_SILENT=Enable REMOVEOUTOFDATEJRES=1 

"\\fileserver\Data\IT\_Release\Oracle_Java\jrex64.exe" INSTALL_SILENT=Enable

Open in new window
