OK. I'm on a roll. Here's the detail. JRE installation packages are built using InstallShield Developer 7. The JRE installation executables include built-in support for silent (unattended) installations. In the command line we can do all sorts of fun stuff, but let's focus on topic. Here's a command line sample.
j2re-1_4_2_06-windows-i586-p.exe /s /v"/qn IEXPLORER=1 ADDLOCAL=ALL UPDATE=1 /L C:\jre.log"
Here is the command for silent installation, turning off automatic updates:
.exe /s /v "/qn[ADDLOCAL=jrecore[,extra][,other_US] | ALL] [IEXPLORER=1] [NETSCAPE6=1] [MOZILLA=1] [INSTALLDIR=:\] [REBOOT=Suppress] [JAVAUPDATE=0] [EULA=1]"
The options are described below.
