Java switchless installation problem

26 posts in this topic

I found this on the ryanvm forum

first download the installer from the link posted above.

then go to start>run and type %systemdrive%:\jre-1_5_0_05-windows-i586-p.exe /a

after that u will get 2 folder one called common and the other called program files and a .msi file.

use this method to create the silent installer:

done

When i do that all i get is the msi and the mst files....no common or program files....

this is the right url to understanding your post. http://ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=479

i have give a try and it works for me, look at the root of your hard disk where the jre-1_5_0_05-windows-i586-p.exe exist. for example, this is D:\XPPROF\INSTALL\SUNJAVA\jre-1_5_0_05-windows-i586-p.exe then the common and programfiles and msi files are in D:\

edit: i dont use the whole command, i use only the "jre-1_5_0_05-windows-i586-p.exe /a"

Ok, you do something wrong, i dont know what.

if you have a other station than C (as if D or higher) please place the file there in the root. go to dos and type jre-1_5_0_05-windows-i586-p.exe /a

you will notice 3 things in the root of that station: a map called "program files", a map called "common" and a file called "J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 5.msi"

Well this time i ran it from a network drive then i did cmd typed the command...the installation started then i check in X:\ but there is no common nor program files. I tried on 2 PCs...if i do it from x:\rh_install , do the folders appear in X: or in C:? when i had did it in C:\music, i looked in C:\Documents and Settings\z63748\Local Settings\Application Data\{3248F0A6-6813-11D6-A77B-00B0D0150050}...to find the msi and mst files...but no Common or program files...i used this command: x:\rh_install\jre505.exe /a (renamed the file)

i believe it is not able to do this on a networkdrive. and on C: there exist program files, maybe is that the problem too. i dont know how to tell java to unzip everything to a map called "whatever". i have do a /? but it dont help me further...

maybe someone other can help you...

Really? damned... why dont they write the program so that it check once a week or something like that.... :}

and it do something, it checks for new version. (maybe they found bugs in the old version?)
