Sofware: Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_21
OS: Windows XP Professional 32-Bit, SP3
Situation: a new piece of web based software is being deployed this week and prior to this all the company desktops need to be set up to meet the requirements of this software. One of these requirements is JRE 1.6.0_21.
I have successfully scripted the removal of all other Java versions and the installation of the required version, however I cannot get it configured properly.
One of the requirements is that the Java console be set to disabled - if it is not it can cause an issue with a particular function. I have pushed out a deployment.config and deployment.properties but the console just will not disable itself.. I know the config is being read correctly because the update tab is being correctly disabled and removed.
#deployment.properties #Fri Jun 15 09:34:31 EST 2012 deployment.version=6.0 deployment.console.startup.mode=DISABLE deployment.javaws.autodownload=NEVER deployment.javaws.autodownload.locked=
There is no change if I set the console to ENABLE either - it remains on the default of hidden.
I'm sure I can disable the console with a registry change of some form but my preference is to have it done via the deployment files as it gives the option of centralising the properties file to a network share if we wish.
If anyone has any suggestions it would be appreciated.
