Could anybody help me out in providing me the command line parameter to install activesync 4.1 without prompting for the reboot message at the end.

Thanks in advance.

I installed it with the following command line and it didn't came up with a reboot question:

SETUP.EXE /S /v/qn

Hope it works for you.....

Thnx for your reply,
I am trying to extract the msi from setup.exe and install it.
Is there any command line parameter for the msi to suppress the reboot message window.

The standard way of preventing a reboot is:

"REBOOT=r REBOOTPROMPT=s"

Append the above string to your command line.

I've always used REBOOT=ReallySuppress in the command line for an MSI property, seems to do the trick for us.

Could you post your entire command line, so we can check it?

It is possible for a CA to bypass the MSI reboot mechanism, and force its' own reboot. I don't know if ActiveSync does this or not, but judging by some of the other flaws in that package I wouldn't be at all surprised!

Yes, i too found an custom action to set the reboot property to "force" and "reallysuppress". But eventhough i tried to give an condition that will not execute this custom action it doesnt seem to work??

That's not what I meant.

I mean that a CA could be rebooting the machine (not the Windows Installer).

Try using verbose logging to find out what is happening at the end of your installation.

Hi WiseUser,
Its an Windows Installer reboot message box that appears if there is an msi error/warning 1703. Is there any option to disable this??
