    Java Deployment

    Has anybody had to deploy Java JRE?

    Like it says on that link below :

    " If you want to register the JRE as the default virtual machine of Internet Explorer, Mozilla, and Netscape browsers, you will have to create a transform that sets the variables IEXPLORER, MOZILLA, and NETSCAPE6 to 1 in the Property.idt table.
    You can find instructions on how to generate and use transforms at the Microsoft MSDN site. "

    This whole Transform business just flies straight over my head. Unfortunately I need to get it done though as, if i end up having it not the default virtual machine, i'm going to have to go round every machine in school and manually do this which almosts defeats the purpose of doing a lazy deploy.

    http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000011100.xml

    No problem assigning the MSI to GPO but that transform bit just has me lost.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I think I just edited the msi directly using orca rather than do it the proper way of creating a transform.

    Trouble is there have been numerous patches which I haven't applied since I created it.

    I deploy Open Office 2.0. There's a version for windows that includes Sun's JRE. So I get java on the machines for free when I push out OO.org.

    Now I've followed this (and other articles) to a T. i can deploy it but it just seems to be ignoring the update settings in the property tables and it will not disable Java updates

    Anyone care to share their msi + transform? Im trying it with JRE 6.2.

    As with most other software, the EULA prevents anyone from distributing their MSIs.

    Hi, I too have been playing with this today. I edited the msi directly in orca, the program seems to install correctly and shows in add/remove programs as installed. But even with these options added, does not work in IE.
    No Java option under IE advanced properties. Any ideas?
