Java .jar file opens and runs properly.
What does not
GUI Off-line Installer fails silently. Hangs. Process must be killed.
GUI Off-line installer fails but the "silent" install option installs all core components before failing to register the control panel applet.
Install from a terminal like so:
wine jre-8u162-windows-i586.exe /s
Simplify java use by creating (or adding to existing semi-colon delimited path list) :
PATH=c:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_162\bin (REG_EXPAND_SZ)
Start jar with:
java -jar file.jar
What was not tested
Not sure. JRE is vast.
