Unable to use INSTALLCFG command with CFG file located on network share

    Details

    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      windows_7

      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      Windows 7 32-bit
      Windows 7 64-bit

      Java Runtime Environment (Java 8 Update 202)

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I'm preparing a deployment of Java Runtime Environment in our organization and I noticed a continuing issue where when I ran my installation from a network location using INSTALLCFG, it would fail on me and the installation would halt. Copying the contents to a local drive and running it from there allowed it to proceed as usual.

      REGRESSION : Last worked in version 8u202

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Created CFG file to use with the INSTALLCFG parameters when installing Java 8 Update 202, placed the file on a network share (UNC path) and attempted to run it using command line.

      \\path\to\file\jre-8u202-windows-i586.exe INSTALLCFG=\\path\to\file\config.cfg

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Java 8 should have installed without any problems
      ACTUAL -
      Received error message popup with the following error:

      Unable to install Java

      There are errors in the following switches:
      "INSTALLCFG=\\path\to\file\config.cfg:;.

      Check that the commands are valid and try again.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Copying the CFG file to the local system and running the command there allows the installer to function as expected.

      \\path\to\file\jre-8u202-windows-i586.exe INSTALLCFG=X:\path\to\file\config.cfg

      FREQUENCY : always
