Detecting the Newest version of Java currently installed

Recommended Posts

Duck

I am having some issue coming up with the logic to detect the latest version of Java installed on a PC via the JRE in C:\Program Files\Java\*
I need to detect the latest version of Java (JRE) to dynamically create a batch file that points to the correct Java version. 

I have already put all the subfolders name's in an array but now i need to find the latest version for my $version variable

;Gift Card Finder
#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

If FileExists('C:\Program Files\Java\*') Then
        Global $fileList = _FileListToArray('C:\Program Files\Java\', 'jre*')
EndIf


For $i = 1 To $fileList[0]
    Local $version = StringTrimLeft($fileList[$i],3);Get JRE version number
    ;Local $version = StringReplace($version, '_', '')
    MsgBox(0,'','jre' & $version)
Next


Local $batch = "C:\IT\GiftCardFind.bat"

$file = FileOpen($batch, 1)
        FileWriteLine($file, ' ')
        FileWriteLine($file, '@echo off')
        FileWriteLine($file, 'SETLOCAL')
        FileWriteLine($file, ' ')
        FileWriteLine($file, 'SET JAVA_7_PATH="C:\program files\java\'& $version &'"')
        FileWriteLine($file, ' ')
        FileWriteLine($file, 'SET SHARE=\\srvlpcorp01\GiftCardFinder')
        FileWriteLine($file, 'TITLE Gift Card Finder')
        FileWriteLine($file, 'SET LOG_FILE="C:\Program Files\GCFind\GCFind.Log"')
        FileWriteLine($file, 'SET JAVA_JRE="C:\program files\java\'& $version &'\bin\java.exe"')
        FileWriteLine($file, ' ')
        FileWriteLine($file, 'ECHO Gift Card Finder started %DATE% %TIME% > %LOG_FILE% 2>&1')

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.

      Hi,
      I was looking into a way to delete a registry key (not a specific value, an entire key) if it is present. I was considering using RegRead and RegDelete. However, RegRead appears to only read values, not just keys. Is there a way to delete an entire registry key if it is present? I have heard that the below function may help.
