Is there a way to force a MSI to reboot "Without" prompting the user but you have a /qb! on the command line?

We need our users to see the installer happen but have no interaction so we use a /qb!. But we need the MSI to reboot at the end and not prompt for it. I need to call this from the command line as well.

Can't you add a property
REBOOT=Force on ur command line.
Note: This work if you are not installing multiple packages

Why do you need a reboot in the first place? There is a very limited set of circumstances where one is required.

I'm willing to bet your MSI adds a folder to the SYSTEM path? This is normally why MSIs 'require' a reboot. The simple expedient of changing the path addition to the USER path obviates that requirement.

REBOOT=F does not work, it still prompts the user.
We have an interactive installer (IE7) and we want it to reboot at the end.

Like I have for years I used shutdown.exe but I wanted to know if there was a cleaner way of doing it with just the MSI native tools.

If you don't want any user involvement, why are you using /qb!. Use "/qb!- REBOOT=Force REBOOTPROMPT=Suppress"

Or even better: "/qn REBOOT=Force REBOOTPROMPT=ReallySuppress".

as you can see, a /qn would not be in order for the requirements.
