Description

Name: gm110360			Date: 07/30/2002


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-b92)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-b92, mixed mode)


FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
n/a

ADDITIONAL OPERATING SYSTEMS :
n/a


A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
JRE 1.4 contains a way to silently install itself, but it
doesn't contain a way to silently uninstall.  If you have
one, you need to have the other.

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
In the previous version of the jre there used to be a file
called uninst.isu which could be used to uninstall the jre
silently.  This feature was never documented.

I have tried to do something similar with jre1.4 but that
file is gone, and I can't find a way to do the
uninstallation of the jre silently.
