    Trying to Deploy Java JRE 8_u_25.exe using LANDesk Software Deployment and cannot get it to work!

      Trying to Deploy Java JRE 8_u_25.exe using LANDesk Software Deployment and cannot get it to execute remotely!

       

      The error I am getting is 1619 This installation package could not be opened.  Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

       

      I have a batch file that has the following:

       

      msiexec /i jre1.8.0_25.msi   -- which calls the Windows MSI installer, uses the switch /i for install, and then targets the MSI which is extracted from the executable you download from the website. 

       

      It installs great locally but it will not execute remotely. 

       

      I have tried using the silent switch on the downloaded .EXE file and it still threw the 1619 error.

       

      I tried bypassing the bat file and putting the command directly into the task so it runs the executable with the /i command.

       

      I tried using LD to copy the MSI and Bat file to the target machine, then launching the bat file on the station.

       

      I downloaded another fresh installer from the java website to see if it was that – it wasn’t.

       

      I tried installing it through Patch and Compliance scans and the patcher doesn’t install it.

       

      I tried mapping a drive to a folder on the local server with admin credentials that had the install files in it and running it via mapped drive.

       

      I verified that the installer worked by remoting to the target machine and running the bat file.  It installed just fine that way.


      Need to ultimately run this installer across 3000 machines so would just soon not do it manually.  I am uninstalling a previous version of Java and installing this one in its place.  Has anyone else had luck deploying Java JRE using LD

          Hi Jkstillman,

          You mentioned that running the package locally works, but not when executed from a network share. But then you also mentioned that using Patch Management isn't working either though, which should be running the patch locally, so it's not clear with that regard.

          When you say it runs fine if ran locally, do you mean if you go double click the file to run it vs use LDMS to run it? If you are manually running it by double clicking the file on the client to launch it, vs using LDMS, it is likely running as different user accounts. Manually running it (double click) will run as the logged on user, and distribution packages and patches install as local system. You can try setting an account to run as in the distribution package under 'Accounts' which would allow sdclient to run the package as a specific user.
