We have the same problem when we try to deploy this MSI via GPO with the same settings as the versions before.
I solved it by installing the exe file with the following command.
jre-7u21-windows-i586.exe /s /v"/norestart AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 JU=0"
But the variabels that should disable the autoupdate feature dont seem to work because I still get the update folder in control panel and registry values are still active.
I had to import a reg value after the installation to disable them.
We are hitted by the the same BUG.
See two threads above.
However the workaround you posted is not an option for us as it fails for JRE X86 on X64 systems due to the ugly, well known bug, that the exe installer doesn't find it's own extracted files.

Yes same problem here. I had a successful rollout with the MSI package and version 1.7 Update 17 on 1500 computers!
I packaged the Update 21 and on my first test-clients the control panel crashes when I try to open it. But the setup ends successful without any error code all eventviewer entries are successful and it seems that the environment is running. Firefox plugintest was successful.
Why doesn't offer Orcale the MSI files?! Since last year Java cost me o lot of time deploying Java. There is no update which you can release quickly because there are always bugs to deploy them.
Same problem here...
The problem mostly occurs on Windows 7 32 bit. Control Panel works perfect on Windows XP.
On Windows 7 64 bit it sometimes works, sometimes not...
As we have disabled Java in Browsers by default, the user needs the control panel to enable it (if needed on a site)...
No sure if those groups are monitored by Oracle as they are user to user groups.
Any idea how to bring this issue to the attention of Oracle?
IMHO this is a major issue as it prevents applying urgent security fixes esp.
to large managed environments and I would assume those are the
kind of customers Oracle would be interrested in.
Starting Shitstorm on facebook?! No just kidding but I'm in the mood :-D
I agree that it is important to tell Oracle of that need. After the last Update 17 I thought Orcale has understood the need to improve Java.
I have installed 30 test clients and it seems to be working on windows XP 32 Bit but not on Windows 7 64Bit.
On same W7 machines is starts every second try then some time later anymore and also in the other direction. Very confusion.
I have tried to analyse the problem with procmon but without success.

Guys, this is a user to user forum. Oracle doesn't read threads in here. File an official SR.
