I was trying to use kscript to push out java 8u31 and I was doing this silently and couldn't understand why it would fail. I took the /s parameter off of it and noticed that when I would proceed through a regular install it would give me an error code 1619(verify the file still exists) weird thing is the 64bit version of java worked with no issues via Kace. I have tried the offline versions of both 32 and 64 and it only seems to happen when I load the 32bit verison up as a dependency file for the kscript. What am I doing wrong and is there an easier method to push out this version of Java via Kace?
Thanks in advanced,
Glenn Watts

it´s a known bug. try to install the msi. for that, extract the downloaded .exe file. Just execute the file and look under %LOCALAPPDATA%Low\Sun\Java\jre1.8.0_40 or %LOCALAPPDATA%Low\Sun\Java\jre1.8.0_40_x64 to find a msi. now you can deploy the msi using the following command.

msiexec /i jre1.8.0_40.msi JU=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 RebootYesNo=No WEB_JAVA=1 /qn /L*v %TEMP%\jre8u40.log

  • Yeah, I went with the msi and resolved this a few days ago. Thanks everyone for your help. I wonder if you zip the Java exe upload it as a dependency file and unzip it on target machines if that will work. I will try this on Sunday, but this issue has been resolved. Thanks for the help.
An error code of 1619 means: This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and is accessible, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package. 
Check that your setup of the deployment in KACE is correct, and there isn't a basic path error or a typo.

I would try downloading the file again. I had some issues with 8u31 a few days ago on 32 bit systems and noticed that the java.com download site had a banner saying some people were having issues installing the latest package and they were investigating the issue. I just looked and the banner is gone so it's possible there was an issue with it and they just fixed it.
