    teh Java is broken everywheres! :(

    Help

    It came to my attention the other day that the java plugin on all PC's/laptops has stopped working. I tried re-deploying via GP (didnt work) and then tried deploying the newer version (again, didnt work)

    The only way I could get it to work was manually uninstall and re-install. I cannot do this on 500+ PC's

    We are running java 1.6.02 and IE7 with a mix of vista & XP clients

    Any ideas?

    If you create an autoit script, you could re-install silently

    This is mine.

    Code:
    If FileExists("c:\program files\java\javainstalled") Then
    Exit
    Else
    
    ;Block mouse/keyboard input	
    BlockInput(1)
    
    ;Display status message, run exe wait till finished, Turn message off.
    SplashTextOn("Java Install", @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Installing Java Runtime Environment pease wait for" & @CRLF & "this screen to close before continuing." & @CRLF & "Completed - 0/2","500","200","-1","-1",0,"","","")
    
    ;Run java 1.4 installer.
    RunWait('\\server\share$\j2re-1_4_2_17-windows-i586-p.exe /s /v"/qn IEXPLORER=1 ADDLOCAL=ALL /L C:\windows\temp\j1.4.log" ')
    Splashoff()
    
    ;Run java 1.6 installer.
    SplashTextOn("Java Install", @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Installing Java Runtime Environment Please wait for" & @CRLF & "this screen to close before continuing." & @CRLF & "Completed - 1/2","500","200","-1","-1",0,"","","")
    RunWait('\\server\share$\jre-6u7-windows-i586-p-s.exe /s')
    
    ;creates directory call javainstalled.
    DirCreate("c:\program files\java\javainstalled")
    
    ;Display message that installer has finished then exit.
    Splashoff()
    SplashTextOn("Java Install", @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Installation complete","500","200","-1","-1",0,"","","")
    sleep(3000)
    
    ;unblock mouse/keyboard input
    BlockInput(0)
    ;turn any messages off.
    SplashOff()
    EndIf
    Just need to change the link to where the exe files are for 1.4 and 1.6. Can take out 1.4 as we needed it for some software.

    If you need any help with it pm me.

    If you logon a machine experiencing problems, navigate to Tools > Internet Options > Programs > Manage add-ons

    In the list, check that the Java Active X controls are enabled. Java 1.6.02 is a fairly old version. Here's how to get the latest version and the MSI for deployment which should do the trick.
