      Description

      There are some errors on page: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/install/config.html#installing_with_config_file

      1. INSTALL_DIR is not supported. It should be INSTALLDIR
      2. "NOSTARTMENU" is currently supported by JRE offline installer, not only msi
      3. "After installing the JRE with a configuration file, the installer saves the file in the one of the following locations in your computer" - this is not exactly true.
      Only subset of the options is saved to the runtime configuration file. INSTALLDIR is not saved, for example.
