Is there anyone to work with a setup.exe (InstallShield) so that it doesn't reboot after the uninstall? After the Installer is finished it just reboot's your computer without a dialog box or any warning.

Have you tried REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS

ie msiexec /x GUID /qn REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS

Not sure how you pass this through a exe as i always use the MSI's.

  • I'll try that, thanks. If that doesn't work, do you suggest i generate an MSI and work with that. It's always easier i guess.
  • lol, I bet you a school yard lunch that your exe is wrapping up a MSI (:
    Have a read of this: http://kb.flexerasoftware.com/doc/Helpnet/isxhelp12/IHelpSetup_EXECmdLine.htm
  • So you think if i specifiy /v to enable MSI commands, then something like /norestart or REBOOT=ReallySupress would work?
  • Exactly how long would it take to test the theory in one of your test VMs?!?
  • Not long at all ^^
