Troubleshooting group policy java install
So I followed jamesfed's excellent guide to install java
Deploying Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash and Java by MSI/GPO - Guides
All looked good, Java appears in "Programs and Features" as an installed program.
However when I run from java from cmd it's not found
and a quick search reveals there is no java.exe on the PC !
I ran the msi manually (changes saved in the msi rather than a separate transform) from the server share
and it said it was already installed and did I want to re-install. Clicked yes and it removed it! Nice touch. So ran msi again
and this time was installed ok
So went round some other PC's and uninstalled java. then did a gpupdate / force and rebooted.
Nothing seemed to happen i.e. no messages about installing software. Logged in and sure enough java not installed
Then went to GPMC and did a group policy results wizard which shows no issues e.g. java install GPO applied ok but
I know it's not !?
Any ideas on troubleshooting this further ?

Have you tried deployment on a vanilla machine?

under time pressure here as java needed by tomorrow and still got a million and one other things to do as well.
If it comes to it I can manually install as a temp fix (assuming that wouldn't mess up with app assignment in GPO ?)

to get it to work use an old version no nag screens about do you want to run this no this is an old version update now or the world may end when you try and use a webpage that needs java

I'm trying to roll out an old 6 version:
java version "1.6.0_37"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 20.12-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

i just use orca and create a transform for it then use group policy to fire out the msi/mst
just be sure to set iexplore(r) (cant remember which it is but there is only one) in the properties page when editing with orca to 1 or it will do nowt.
best bet is have a look on itninja theres pages and pages about it
