I am attempting to deploy java over group policy and am running into a few issues. Sometimes when the msi installs, the installer reports that it succeeded in the event viewer, but when I go to the java directory, I do not see the bin folder or any other folders that would indicate it installed successfully. Here is an image of what I am talking about (it's for jdk but jre has the same issue as well).
I have noticed this happens when the msi attempts to install over a previous version of java (When the computers were setup, java was installed manually, I now want to do this over group policy).
Has anyone experienced this and can tell me what's going wrong? I assume the java msi can't handle upgrading over a previous installation but am unsure on how to fix it.
