Had issues installing via the System account using the jre-8u25-windows-i586.exe. Interestingly enough, this was only an issue on x64, for us.

Using jre1.8.0_25.msi, I was able to pass the required switches. Final syntax looked somewhat like this: "Msiexec /i jre1.8.0_25.msi STATIC=1 AUTO_UPDATE=0 NOSTARTMENU=1 /qn /l*v c:\windows\logs\JRE_1.8.0.25.log"

This link may be helpful understanding some of the potential switches, which I understand changed with this version.

There are registry values you can use to prevent sponsor message options being shown.

The sponsor software doesn't install with a command line anyway, just on auto updates (if user is prompted).

Script can be as simple as:

reg add HKLM\software\javasoft /v "SPONSORS" /t REG_SZ /d "DISABLE" /f
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft /v "SPONSORS" /t REG_SZ /d "DISABLE" /f

jre-8u25-windows-i586.exe seems to have issues running as SYSTEM and jre1.8.0_25.msi seems to have issues running as anything else.
If your installer runs as SYSTEM, extract the msi the same way as older version of java and then use "msiexec /i jre1.8.0_25.msi AUTO_UPDATE=0 /q"

If you are using SCCM, you need to copy the java.settins.cfg to %PROGRAMDATA%\Oracle\Java\ before running the installer.

  • We've battled with this one for quite some time. Finally we've opted doing an online K-script with the exe, since we've never managed to get the msi working after extraction. We didn't bother trying it under the system account after it didn't work under a regular user account.
    We can now confirm that it actually works, no editing the msi is needed.
    We use a slightly different command line in the K1 managed installation:

    msiexec /i jre1.8.0_25.msi JU=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 RebootYesNo=No WEB_JAVA=1 /q

    check "dont prepend msiexec and you should be all good to go.
