    Java 7 Update 40 Install Issues?

    Rookie

      Has anyone had any issues with deploying Java 7 Update 40 via SCUPdates? My company is currently seeing an issue where Java 7 Update 40 gets installed on the system yet when trying to access any site through Chrome, Firefox or IE that requires Java it doesn't detect any Java installed on the system. It doesn't appear to be all machines but enough to be a concern. The resolution is to go out and manually re-install Java. Wonder if anyone else is having this issue?

          Hi,

           

          Most often Java installs don't finish correctly due to Java being in use at the time of patch installation. You might want to perform a pre-installation reboot of systems or look into writing a script that will close down any software that might be using Java prior to performing patch installation.

           

          Thanks

            We have been seeing the same issue - any installation of java 7.0 below patch 40, it will attempt to install then remove the whole application, all servers with versions above this appear to be unaffected by this issue all versions below version 7 are not affected. we have raised this with support.
