Publishing Java only as an update

Topics: Publishing Issue
Jul 9, 2015 at 4:03 PM
Hey Guys,

I've found several topics concerning Java Updates but those aren't updates in my opinion.
I want to deploy Java only to machines who already have Java installed and not to every machine.
As well I don't want to create a separate group in AD only for those clients who need Java, which would be the only possibility at the moment that I can see.

I have tried to use the documentation of "Installing Java 7u21..." from the documentation page and then marked the type as "update" but then all my machines (also the servers) want to install java.

So does any of you guys know how to deploy Java only as an update for clients who already have Java installed?

Thanks for you efforts and Cheers!

You have make a new condition for the Java.exe in %programfiles%\Java.....

Create a new condition for only workstations XP and higher.

Both conditions, Java.exe and Workstation condition you can combine in a AND condition.
