If you attempt to install the Java 8u65 runtime on a Windows Server, the following error message appears:

Content within this application coming from the website listed below is being blocked by Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration

Content within this application coming from the website listed below is being blocked by Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration

When the dialog is dismissed, the installer hangs. I tried adding the file to the Trusted sites zone, but I couldn't figure out how to properly format the path.

How can I install the Java 8u65 runtime on my Windows Server?

The simplest workaround is to perform a silent install from the command line:

start /wait jre-8u65-windows-i586.exe /s REBOOT=0

Another possibility would be to temporarily disable Enhanced Security Configuration.

(NB: Oracle have accepted a bug report, JDK-8140197.)

  • Silent mode works like a charm on Windows Server 2012 R2, also with x64 version +1 – JanW Oct 23 '15 at 10:28
  • Thank you for that answer, going to do more silent installs :-) I have just included a link to disable ESC incase you are 2012+ blog.blksthl.com/2012/11/28/… – Jeff Kranenburg Nov 19 '15 at 18:59
