Microsoft Orca MSI File

I have had a few requests lately about how to turn off the automatic updates for the Java client on users machines. There are a number of ways you can do this if you are pushing it out via Configuration Manager (or making it available via your Software Catalog) but my personal preference is to use an old Microsoft MSI editing tool called Orca.

Microsoft Orca is dead now but you can still use it to edit any modern (not just Microsoft) MSI files.
You can download the Orca installation file from my SkyDrive here:
It’s not the simplest tool in the word to use but if you are technical person used to such tools it should make perfect sense to you.
As I’ve been asked about the amendments for Java updates on client machines, I will shortly post a guide on how to use Orca to create a file to turn off automatic updates from running.
