Sub Tasks

Description
- Uninstall all JREs
 - Install PIT build using "/s" option -> jre160.exe /s
 - Launch browser and see if applets are loaded
 - Check in Java-Control-Panel in "Advanced" tab checkbox values
   under "Default Java for browsers". If both IE and Mozilla checkbox
   is unchecked bug is reproduced.

Plugin is not registered in silent mode by default.

Plugin registration happens properly if we explicitely pass the flags
jre160.exe /s "IEXPLORER=1 MOZILLA=1"

Logs attached..

EVALUATION

The issue is the browser verification is not executed in silent mode since the CustomAction is in UI sequence. The fix is to check the browsers installation when it's ready to create the jre registry keys.
