Put the new version in a staging dir, given a specific return to the exe which moves the new version into place and relaunches.

(EDIT: Or better yet use versioned dirs for potential fallback.)

So do I get a nice concise argument for why they shouldn't remove Java from their systems for when moderators on that site suggest they do? Preferably in a way that Joe public (and I) can understand. Or should I just accept that the only way I can release software is as an exe and expect Joe public to download a new runtime for each install.

The latter. Regular people should remove the system JRE and developers should use embedded JREs.

.bat/.sh files are fine as well as .exe files.

...the only reason I even have a system JRE installed is because it comes with the JDK which I use to run Eclipse.
I forgot:  just use '-vm' and you don't need a system JRE/JDK or specify the specific one you want.

As for end-user uninstall the JRE.  What for?  Just disable in the browser and call it a day.  If we were to uninstall all apps with holes, we wouldn't have many programs to run...but that wouldn't matter because all of us would have to nuke our OSes as well.  There are pros & cons of both choices (system vs. embedded runtime) both for end-user and developers.
