    It is rather frustrating that a large proportion of software still uses Java. Why on earth Apple decided to block Flash rather than Java (on the iPad for example) - it makes no sense at all.

    I think Sun developers need to start making incremental updates rather than full updates every month.

    No, just the free version. Just go to each machine manually and set it off. We use it to update 80% of our apps.

    Once you have set off the last machine, the first one is usually finished.

    The free version can't be used in a commercial environment.

    Deploying Java via GPO is generally hit and miss. I've had more success uninstalling the previous version, then installing the newer version all by GPO.

    That's why I avoid Java wherever possible and only install it on machines that require it. I'd definitely suggest you perform some tests with a small group of machines before deploying domain wide.

    Tested on a PC on my desk and tested with the OU where the room in question with the issues was and it's updated from udpate 25 to 45 (32bit version).

    I will give it a few days then update some other OU's and take it easy till the whole site is updated...

    Thanks for everyones help

    I've had issues with u25 and u40 uninstalling. GPO majes it easy. If java is just used on certain sites you can configure a java deployment rule set. You specify the domain and the version of java you want to use. You can block all other domains. You do need to sign the jar file which contains the xml. Doing it this way means that you get no warnings for named domains. I can post instructions.
