Troubleshooting group policy java install
So I followed jamesfed's excellent guide to install java
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 ?
