      Description

      Reported by a user:
      "Since version 8, the silent install for Java RE does not automatically uninstall older versions. WHY? WHY? WHY?... How am I supposed to install this on hundreds of computers.

      I'd rather not learn and use the MSI Enterprise JRE Installer, I want to keep using my existing process - SolarWinds Patch Manager."
