      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      issues exists in the jdk's for both 7 update 4 and 6 update 32.

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      windows xp sp3 x86

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      i have used the following command line for some time without any problem for both the ver 6 & 7 jdk:

      \\altiris1\dspushes\java\jdk6u30.exe /s ADDLOCAL="ToolsFeature,DemosFeature,SourceFeature,PublicjreFeature" INSTALLDIR=c:\java\jdk6
      it works for 6u30, 6u31, 7u2, and 7u3....

      but stops working with 6u32 and 7u4. i have found that if i take of the installdir portion, it will work, but of course installs it in program files, not where i need it to go. i have tried it with and w/o the / before the installdir, doesn't work with either one.

      the documentation does not show any changes.

      was this intentional?

      with the installdir on the command line (running w/o the /s switch) you get an error message:

      windows installer:
      invalid command line argument. consult the windows installer sdk for detailed command line help.
