Installing Eclipse Temurin JRE to Non-Default Location [message #1857822] Mon, 27 February 2023 19:31 Go to next message

I'm installing Eclipse Temurin Adoptium JRE 11 to non-default location (to "C:\Non-Default-Path\Eclipse Adoptium" instead of "C:\Program Files\Eclipse Adoptium").

But it always gets installed to the default location (to "C:\Program Files\Eclipse Adoptium").

Does Adoptium JRE 11 msi distribution file "OpenJDK11U-jre_x64_windows_hotspot_11.0.18_10.msi" supports command line installation to non-default location?

I'm using following command format:
"msiexec /i <jre>.msi /l*v <file>.log /qn INSTALLDIR=C:\Non-Default-Path\Eclipse Adoptium"

I see "Ignoring disallowed property INSTALLDIR" in the log file.

What property name MSI file supports for Non-Default location, should I use INSTALLDIR or different property?

Thanks so much!

Explicitly running the CMD shell as administrator fixed the issue. Also need to include ADDLOCAL feature:

"msiexec /i .msi /l*v .log /qn ADDLOCAL=FeatureMain,FeatureEnvironment,FeatureJarFileRunWith,FeatureJavaHome INSTALLDIR=C:\Non Default Path\Eclipse Adoptium"

An old document

msiexec /i <path of msi> -- it will install all the features

while msiexec /i <path of msi> ADDLOCAL=f1,f2 -- it will install only f1 and f2 features

Is there a way to list all available features within an MSI package so that I can choose which ones to install using the ADDLOCAL parameter?

Yes, you can list all available features within an MSI package by using the msiexec command-line tool. This tool allows you to interact with Windows Installer packages (MSI files) and provides various options for installation and configuration.

Hey! Looks like the MSI file might not support the INSTALLDIR property. You could try using INSTALLLOCATION instead. Give it a shot like:
"msiexec /i <jre>.msi /l*v <file>.log /qn INSTALLLOCATION=C:\Non-Default-Path\Eclipse Adoptium"

Might do the trick! Good luck!

The correct command format is:

msiexec /i <jre>.msi /l*v <file>.log /qn INSTALLLOCATION=C:\Non-Default-Path\Eclipse Adoptium
This will install the JRE to the specified non-default location.

The MSI file for Adoptium JRE 11 does not support the INSTALLDIR property for non-default location installation.
