If you get following error message: “Content within this application coming from the website listed below is being blocked by Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration” when installing Java SE Runtime Environment 8 on Windows Server 2012, this is the way to fix the issue.
Error usually looks like this when you try to execute: jre-8u65-windows-x64.exe
Simple fix is to run the executable silently from a windows command line.
Just go to the folder where you’ve downloaded: jre-8u65-windows-x64.exe and run:
start /wait jre-8u65-windows-x64.exe /s REBOOT=0
It will look like this:
It’ll take approximately 20 seconds and you’re all done!
If above doesn’t work:
Temporarily Disable Internet Explorer Enhanced Security in Windows 2012:
- On the Windows Server 2012 server desktop, locate and start the Server Manager.
- Select Local Server (The server you are currently on and the one that needs IE Enhanced Security disabled)
- On the right side of the Server Manager, you will find the IE Enhanced Security Configuration Setting. (The default is On)
- You have two settings that can be disabled, one only affects the Administrators and the other all users. Make your selection to Off for Administrators, Users or both.
Then try to install jre-8u65-windows-x64.exe as usual in windows, by double clicking it and you should see the common installation screen:
Hope this helped.
