SOLUTION
Follow these steps to extract the .msi file from the installer for deployment through Active Directory based network:

  1. Download and launch the Windows Offline Installation executable (.exe) file.
  2. Navigate to LocalAppData folder (the user’s Application Data folder). The location of the LocalAppData folder differs for each Windows platform.
    Note: You can also navigate directly to APPData folder by typing : %APPDATA% in Windows Explorer Address Bar or Run.
    • Windows Vista and Windows 7
      C:\Users\</user>\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_05\jre1.6.0_05.msi
    • Windows XP
      C:\Documents and Settings\</user>\Local Settings\ApplicationData\Sun\Java\ jre1.6.0_05\jre1.6.0_05.msi
    • Windows 2000
      C:\Documents and Settings\</user>\ApplicationData\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_05\ jre1.6.0_05.msi
  3. From there, you can use Active Directory to distribute the Java msi file to as many client Windows platforms as you want.

Tip: Download the Java RE from java.sun.com instead of java.com to get the package without the Yahoo! Toolbar.
The installer from java.sun.com simplifies the matter greatly as no transforms are required and the Yahoo! Toolbar is not installed alongside Java.
