Install Java 6 11 Silently

The Java Runtime Environment is required for applications written in the Java programming language to function. All Java installation packages support silent installation so that they may be bundled into developer software without interrupting the installation process. You can invoke the silent execution parameter of Java 6.11 by opening it on the command-line. You will need to have administrative access to perform the installation.


1. Click "Start" and then enter "CMD" into the search bar. Press "Shift"+"Enter."

2. Press "Yes" if asked if you wish to authorize the Command Prompt administrative access.

3. Navigate to the directory where you have downloaded the Java setup file. If you have not downloaded it, you can obtain Java from the Java.com website.

4. Enter the silent installation directive. This takes the form of "jre-example.exe /s" without quotes. For example, if the file name is "jre-6_1_1-bin-win.exe" you would type "jre-6_1_1-bin-win.exe /s" and press "Enter."
