Software Deployment Question
Deploying Java 8 Update 101 with SCCM
We have been deploying Java updates for years with only a minor hassle with old versions; but update 101 refuses to install.
I have grabbed the MSI from the LocalLow folder and am using this command to deploy it:
msiexec /i "jre1.8.0_101.msi" /qn AUTO_UPDATE=Disable
This works from Command Prompt on a workstation but through SCCM throws the following error in the Event Logs:
Event ID: 11722
Product: Java 8 Update 101 -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action installexe, location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_101\installer.exe, command: /s INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_101\\" AUTO_UPDATE=Disable
Any ideas? We are on Windows 10 1511 x64 and SCCM 1606.

Found the problem!
Despite the command line working as Local Admin it doesn't work with the AUTO_UPDATE=Disable switch as SYSTEM.
Any other switch I can use that will do the same function? Already tried AUTO_UPDATE=0

I'm getting soft in my old age. Here's a link to the 32-bit and 64-bit MSIs plus MSTs PLUS install and uninstall CMDs. For free!!
