Intranet deployment

JRE can be distributed to intranet users by hosting the .msi file on an internal web site and asking users to launch the installer through msiexec. The other option is to install the JRE through Active Directory. If you are using Active Directory, you may have to customize the .msi file, which is known as creating a transform.

You could obtain the .msi file for the JRE installer by installing J2RE offline windows installer. After installation, the .msi file, which is called "Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_01.msi", will be available under <LocalAppData folder\{7148F0A6-6813-11D6-A77b-00B0D0142010}. LocalAppData folder is the user's "Application Data" folder. The following steps demonstrate how to create a transform to be used to change the IEXPLORER property from 0 to 1. This is the equivalent of running the .msi file with the following command:

jre.msi /v"IEXPLORER=1
