Remotely and Silently Update Java on Windows 7, 8, & 10

code1

Keeping Java updated in the enterprise network can be difficult because of the frequencies of updates released. This script removes any old versions installed and then installs version 8.77. It also turns off auto updating.

You need to download the offline Java installer and then edit Java32 and Java64 variables for your environment. I have tested and used this script with Java version 8.77. Future builds may need tweaks. Happy Updating!

Code:

@ECHO OFF

set Java32=“\\NETWORK LOCATION\jre-8u77-windows-i586.com”
set Java64=“\\NETWORK LOCATION\jre-8u77-windows-x64.com”

goto uninstall

:uninstall
@ECHO OFF

Windows 7 and 8 Auto login Script

Make a new .Reg file with the code below and merge it to your registry to enable auto login on Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Code:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
“DefaultUserName”=”username”
“DefaultPassword”=”password”
“DefaultDomainName”=”domain”
“AutoAdminLogon”=”1”
“ForceAutoLogon”=”1”

Update the username, password, and domain fields for your needs. To bypass auto login once installed hold down the shift key while the PC is booting.
