Can't open installation package

Topics: Archive - General
Oct 23, 2014 at 8:47 PM
I just found this tool, and it looks pretty nice. I've written a script to deploy Java 8 update 25 and want to deploy it using SCCM 2012. I've tested the script and it works properly. I set the application up to be deployed as described in the documentation and it fails with error 1619, which is "This installation package could not be opened." I've looked in the SCCM local cache and the files are there (installation package and powershell script) and it is being called with the correct command line.
Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be and how to fix it?

I fought this at first with 2012.

You can use "Deploy-Application.EXE" with no parameters like this.

However, when using parameters you have to call the program like this Deploy-Application.EXE -deploymenttype uninstall.

Thanks for the info. I tried it several different ways:
Deploy-Application.EXE -deploymenttype install
Deploy-Application.EXE -deploymenttype "install"
Deploy-Application.EXE Deploy-Application.ps1
Deploy-Application.EXE "Deploy-Application.ps1"
They all failed with the same error.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Can you post your script and the logs from the installation?

Here is the log (there is also a Java7Update65_7.0.650_Uninstall.log, which uninstalls successfully and an empty Java8U25Setup.log which is from the package it can not find):

I see that you are using the installation .exe

I use the .msi and ,cab file from %userprofile%\appdata\locallow\Sun\Java
It will be present in this location when you start the installer.

I use these lines to cleanup and install:
Remove-MSIApplications "Java(TM) 6 Update"
Remove-MSIApplications "Java 7 Update"
Execute-MSI -Action Install -Path "jre1.7.0_71.msi" -Parameters "/QN JU=0 JAVAUPDATE=0 RebootYesNo=No IEXPLORER=1"
Nov 4, 2014 at 8:43 PM
Awesome. Using the MSI fixed it. Do you know why? Is there something in the Toolkit that prevents using EXE installers?
Thanks for you help on this, I really appreciate it.

The .exe method worked fine for me in a VBScript wrapper with the same switches.

I have not tried this yet but it might work if we use single quotes to make the string literal.
