Hi. We are using AD and GPOs to deploy applications and we are about to change version of a program.
So a uninstall och the old version will run on start up then i have tried to make a reboot package, we need a reboot between the packages. But the reboot package does not force the reboot at once, the two packages after runs then the reboot accours.

Is there a way to get this to work? The reboot package has the Property REBOOT=Force

I would use a separate exe like psshutdown.exe from www.sysinternals.com for the reboot. When you force a reboot with it you can be assured that it will take place. I have always found the "in package" reboots to not be as guranteed. I think they check to make sure all threads are closed before rebooting.
