Customer request to have an option to disable java quick start jqs.exe at the JRE installation.

Currently, we can only disable after installation:

EVALUATION This is an approach to fix the bug (currently being revied by Java Installer team): Registry.idt creates during build process registry entry templates in installation bundle (i.e for example in jre-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe ) When installation bundle runs it creates msi file and puts these registry entries templates to it. When msiexec.exe executes msi file it creates a real windows registries based on entry templates (originating from Registry.idt) and on predefined msi properties like for example [JDK_VERSION] or [MODE] There is a way to pass additional properties (or modify values of existing ones) to msi by specifying them in command line parameter while running either a wrapper: jre-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe PROPERTY_NAME=VALUE or msiexec.exe /i jre1.6.0_12.msi PROPERTY_NAME=VALUE So if I run jre-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe UNREGJQS=1 then UNREGJQS propert will be accessible by Regutils.dll by running BOOL FindMSIProperty(LPCTSTR lpszVersion, LPCTSTR lpszProperty, LPTSTR lpszPropertyValue, DWORD dwCount, const int installType, LPTSTR lpszAltPropertyValue) function defined in RegInstall.cpp and as a result if I check UNREGJQS in InstallJQS() function in regUtill.dll I will be able to decide wherever to start or not JQS service.
