Because Java 7 update LDFs that were provided here are known to have security issues they have been removed from this site. We will provide a new LDF in the near future. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Java Runtime Environment 7 Layer are very straight-forward.

1. Extract the download that accompanies this article to your desktop.
2. Download the Java Runtime Installer from here and save it to a folder named "downloads" that resides in the same folder as the LDF extracted in step #1.
3. Double-Click the .bat file. This will invoke swvldf.exe (Layer Definition Tool) with the proper parameters to create the
