      A user reported: "When deploying via group policy using either the msi file or the exe file via a logon script, the installation succeeds but when going to any Java app or the Java test page the loading of Java fails. If I reinstall from the same exe or msi file, the install is successful. This was not a problem ever in version 6. I used the offline download for the exe, and used the msi from the temp file per instructions on this site."


      Method 1
      Create group policy and add the msi file extracted from the exe of offline version file as a software install. (See the attachment)
      In the above example, I have set up under the user administrative template. This works but is not the preferred way to install. If you add the file to the machine admin template, the install fails.

      Method 2
      Set the exe file to install using a login script via machine gp, same script that worked with java 6, no longer works in version 7, only change was exe file used. Did not use this method with user because running silent install either ran and allowed user to open ie which could cause a failed install, or if I set gop to wait, there was a blank screen during install with no user feedback.

      Method 3
      Set GP to install per user and it works ok, but this is not the preferred way to install.
      There is no error that comes up other than the Java test page does not load, and the installation log file has no errors and since I have done a per user install, I no longer have the log.
