Software Deployment Question
how to do a silent install of JRE java 9.0.1 via VK1000 command line
Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far!
I come to you all seeking assistance in the matter of installing java 9.0.1 via the VK1000 appliance. So I have created the label and made the deployment package for said program, however I am stuck with this part in the deployment process since writing commands is not my strong suit. this is what I have written so far (msiexec.exe /i jre-9.0.1_windows-x64_bin.exe /quiet). so the software does downloads to the target machine(s) but the command doesn't runs the installer, it just sits there.
I have *tried* to pull the MSI installer from the download but every time that I try to run it, it says some files are missing or broken so I have decided to just let the jre-9.0.1_windows-x64_bin.exe run with the command but nothing happens. If its of any help, we run WIN 7 ENTERPRISE on our machines.
any and all help is much appreciated!

Man VBScab has already provided more than enough information on this subject!
Anyways, the MSI extracts to following location during install -
Using the extracted MSI worked for me, and is no different to all the previous versions, albeit with location where MSI is extracted.
Detailed steps -
-During installation navigate to extracted directory, as above.
-Copy MSI's before installation finishes.
-Run the MSI on a clean virtual machine, or test device to test MSI install.
-Create MST to include customisation.
-Carry out Package QA.
-Test, Test, Test.
Wonder what Mr Google returns when you enter ProcMon?

To install the .exe you need to have admin rights.
So you need to use scripting to do this since the Managed Installs use the system user to install
The typical installation would be like that jre.exe /s but you can also decide more things here like the install location, if you want the browser plugin etc
