    Hi Guys,

    I am currently using AD to deploy Group Policies. I have a created a GPO to deploy JAVA 6 update 10 msi and linked it to an OU under computer configuration. Yesterday, I decided to push JAVA 6 update 11 out but then removed JAVA 6 update 10 and MISTAKENLY select the option to allow users to continue to use the software but prevent new installations. Now, JAVA 6 update 11 does not install.

    How do I get around this... to allow Java 6 update 11 to install.

    Cheers,

    :oops:

    Have you tried editing the policy for the GPO?

    Hi Fatp,
    You could manually remove the registry keys associated with the GP install. I think they are stored in the locations below:-

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\AppMgmt\

    This should then allow the new java to be pushed to the pc's.

    I'd backup the registry first and do this on a test machine.

    I meant the policy that's applied to the current GPO which is not updating the Java software update. You can edit the policy so that it encompasses the changes you're trying to achieve. Best wishes either way.

    Open the GPO console for the software deployment, in the computer configuration open software settings, then click the software installation node.
    In the details pane, right-click the package for which you want to set properties(which in this case is theJava 6 update 11 ), and then click properties.

    click the deployment tab. in the deployment tab of the Properties dialog box for the package, select
    "assigned" to allow users in the selected site, domain, or OU to receive this application the next time they log on (for assignment to users) or when the computer restarts (for assignment to computers). this sholud help....

    I couldn't agree more - we are indeed all in a learning process. So why exactly do you use braindumps which result in some of our most valuable members (Zeb) feeling they have to leave the forum as a matter of principle? :rolleyes:

    I dont think you guys understand what I am saying:

    Bear in mind, that I have already selected the option to allow users to continue use the software but prevent new install when I removed Java 6 update 10 from the GPO. So therefore, Does this not mean that any new 'Java install' will not be installed?

    cheers again.

    NOTE: If modifications are not properly configured, you will have to uninstall the package or upgrade the package with a correctly configured version.

    carry out the prievously stated process..

    Looks like you will have to recreate the group policy to install the previous version of Java (ie the same settings as when you used group policy to install), then change it to remove the software, update the ploicy on the client machines, then use the new gp to install the update.

    Can you not just remove the GPO you are currently using and then create a new GPO with just the Java 6 update 11 .msi file?
