Dear friends,

I need a help regarding Microsoft Expression Web 2 application:

I tried everything but I didn't get success in silent uninstallation. It gets silently uninstalled but the issue is that it force reboot.

When application is uninstalled from add-remove program it prompts user that a reboot is required while it doesn't during silent uninstallation.

Further to it - It also forces a reboot when I try to do uninstall in a way other than add-remove program.

I run a command msiexec /x [ProductCode] --> this also forces reboot.[:(]

So, my question is that when application is removed via add-remove program does it go through with some other command than mentioned in uninstall string key of registry.

Also advise if application can be uninstalled attended in a way that it doesn't force a reboot

packaging experts please provide your valuable comments. thanks in advance...[8|]

Isn't "Microsoft Expression Web" a IE activex component?
If so make sure IE isn't started during uninstall as it will require a reboot in that case.

Check the PendingFileRenameOperation after the uninstall has finished and prior to the reboot.

PendingFileRenameOperation

no this is not an IE activex component. This is a microsoft tool, which is a replacment of original Microsoft Front page application.

what is "PendingFileRenameOperation"?

what is "PendingFileRenameOperation"? Oh please...Google it!

Also, with any issue like this, use a verbose log to determine what is triggering the operation, in this case, the reboot. And no, I'm not going to spoon-feed you with instructions on how to get a log. Either search here at AppDeploy or at...er...hang on...oh, wait...the name will come to me in just a second... :)

You could post it here but make sure to put it between CODE tags.

Hi,

Try adding all the below properties and check
REBOOT=ReallySupress
MSIRESTARTMANAGERCONTROL=Disable
SETUP_REBOOT=NEVER
else you need to debug using log as suggested by VBScab
