Java 8 Update 40 Released – MSI and Offline Installer

Java have now released update 40 of version 8 of their Java Client software.

The update is available as an offline installer and using our guide below, you can extract the MSI from it and use it for deployment by using Windows Updates to update current machines or add to your Configuration Manager Application Catalog or even deploy using Group Policy. We will also shortly be adding the MSI files to our SourceForge projects (see link below) site for you to download directly.

You can download the Offline Installer from the Java website using the link below:
