Installing Java 7/8 JDK on Windows without executing the Installer

Note to myself  on how to install Java 7/8 JDK without executing the installer on Windows.

  • Download JDK from Oracle
  • Extract the “” file, located inside the installer “jdk-8uXX-windows-i586.exe” file by treating the executable file as ZIP archive.
  • In the destination folder, execute the following command to unpack all libraries:

$ for /r %i in (*.pack) do .\bin\unpack200.exe “%i” “%~pi%~ni.jar”
