Java 7 Update 9 MSI File

If you want to use an MSI to install Java for either Group Policy or for SCCM Software Catalog, you can get the MSI file you need easily from the temp location when you run the EXE file.

So, first of all, you need to get the latest EXE from Java, you can get this from here:

Download Latest Java Client

Once downloaded, you should then run the EXE as if you were going to install it. 

You will be first greeted with the page below:



You should then click "install".

It will then download the files required as below:



These files will be downloaded to the following location (assuming you are using Windows 7):


 %userprofile%\appdata\LocalLow\Sun\Java  

Once downloaded, you should get a screen like below - Do NOT go any further with the installation!



You should then be able to go to the above temp location and see a folder called "jre1.7.0_09" (version numbers may change) like the folder below:


Within this folder, you will find the MSI file that you need for distribution.

You can then cancel the java install but note, this will clear the temp files.

  2. How do you customize so that Java does not go for updates? Users get pop ups and cannot install because of admin rights.

    1. You could take this MSI and then use Microsoft Orca to amend the Java auto update options.

  3. With 7 update 21 and update 25, the temp folder location at %userprofile%\appdata\LocalLow\Sun\Java does not contain one big msi file for install. It now has two files, an msi and a data1.cab file. How do I get the msi with the data1.cab file in one msi file?
