    calling the method deployJava.installJRE("1.6*") always installs JRE7

    331679
      The call to deployJava.installJRE(verison, callback) in deployjava.js
      seems to ignore the version when we supply *"1.6*"* as a version and always installs the latest java 7.

      This happens if we had npdeployJava1.dll version 10.3.0.5 from Java7 still on the machine after uninstalling java7.

      Any ideas how to make it respect the version requested?

      note: deployjava.js is the deployment toolkit javascript that came before dtjava.js

          Only with The dt toolkit installed can deployJava install specific versions or families. The javascript will default, if no dt plugin is available to calling java.com to install the latest secure version available.
          After that, the dt plugin, deploy1ava1.dll, or npdeployJava1.dll should be available for IE and Firefox type browsers, and if not specifically disabled in the browser, you should be able to do this specif installation.
          My testing shows with JRE 8 or JRE 7, or some earlier JRE 6 version already installed, calling the method deployJava.installJRE("1.6*") currently installs 1.6.0_31.
