      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_91-b14)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.91-b14, mixed mode, sharing)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows 7 Professional 64bit

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      We are IT Specialist for multiple larger companies and want to uninstall all older java versions while replacing them with the newest.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When running a silent installation for deployment as the NT-Authority\SYSTEM user on a windows machine, only the new Version will be installed, although the parameter REMOVEOUTOFDATEJRES=1 is set.

      I tried the same procedure with command line parameters and with a configuration file on multiple pcs, all with the same result.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Install any older java version
      Open a cmd as SYSTEM user (for example with "psexec.exe -i -s -d cmd")
      Run jre-8u92-windows-i586.exe INSTALL_SILENT=1 REMOVEOUTOFDATEJRES=1
      Wait for the process to finish
      Check for installed programs

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Java8u92 is installed and all older versions of java are uninstalled
      ACTUAL -
      Java8u92 is installed and all older versions of java are still present

      ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
