Hi all,

I am currently using the command (msiexec.exe /q ALLUSERS=2 /m MSILPEPC /i "IBM SPSS Statistics 22.msi" AUTHCODE="x") to install SPSS 22 through distribution on the K1000. This script worked with v21 with out rebooting the PC. But reboots with v22. Is there anything I can add to the command to make it not reboot?

Many Thanks,
Eddie
Answer Summary:

/qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress
/qn /norestart

Either of those should be useful as long as the MSI conforms to Windows Installer requirements.

There doesn't appear to be an option not to reboot in the documentation.

Here are the Windows docs: ftp://public.dhe.ibm.com/software/analytics/spss/documentation/statistics/22.0/en/client/InstallationDocuments/Windows/

Oddly, the install string is in the Mac version and doesn't appear to be in the Windows one:  ftp://public.dhe.ibm.com/software/analytics/spss/documentation/statistics/22.0/en/client/InstallationDocuments/MacOS/Authorized_User_License_Administrator_Guide.pdf

MsiExec.exe /i "IBM SPSS Statistics 22.msi" /qn /L*v logfile.txt INSTALLDIR="C:\Statistics" AUTHCODE="3241a2314b23c4d5f6ea"

Have you tried adding REBOOT=R to the command line?  This suppresses any "normal" MSI reboot activity.  Other than that, look at the InstallExecute sequence of the MSI for any custom actions that might be forcing the reboot. Then disable with a transform.

REBOOT=R is the same as REBOOT=ReallySuppress - useful shortcut if you have a long command line.
