  1. Hi,
    if i use this script as local admin with the jdk9.0.4.exe installer, the java SE and JDK would be installed fine!
    If i use this script via sccm with the jdk9.0.4.exe installer, only the jdk would be installed but no SE!!!

    But Why ?
    Can someone help me please ?

  2. Confused… This blog’s timestamp shows that it was posted on 5 December, 2012. Java 7 update 67 doesn’t appear to have been released until August of 2014. Was the blog simply updated at that point to reflect a newer version than was originally used in 2012? Not a big deal, but my concern is that some of the command line tags following the .exe file might have changed in format over the past 2 years.
