Java 7 Install Prompt

I love the java pdq deployment in the library - works great. I'd like to add one tweak. Since the deployment kills the browsers - I'd like to give an option to the user to warn them before their browsers will be killed. Something like "Please note all browser windows will be closed - Click OK to begin Java installation". Any way I can achieve this?

  • Hi,

    We do not have a native solution for this, but using the msg.exe command in a command step, you can set a specific time constraint in seconds for how long you want to display a message. For example, if you used the following command: msg /time:30 * Closing Browsers in 30 seconds. in a command step, the message will be displayed and deploy will continue to the next step. For the next step, add a sleep step for 30 seconds to allow the user time to save their work. Finally, after the sleep step the normal Java deployment will commence.(Browsers will be killed)

    Let me know if you have any further questions concerning applying the msg command to your Java package.
