Hi All,

I need to reboot the machine after installer installing the application.

I thought giving REBOOT=force (But I do not want any user prompts to restart), as we know if we install with no user interface we can reboot the system automatically.

I am thinking if I install silently along with REBOOT=Force it should solve my problem.

So how can we replicate /qn behavior inside the .msi package.

Any help Greatly appreciated with +2.

Thanks.
Sourav.

Why are you rebooting? There are only a limited number of situations which actually require one.

You mean that the Windows Installer service was stopped after your installation ran? That *most likely* means one thing: your Windows Installer service was updated, probably from 3.0 to 3.1.

I don't *think* that requires a reboot, but I can't recall. As a test, what happens when you try to start the service manually, as in:

NET START "Windows Installer"

If that works, use the ServiceControl table to set the service to start. You should then set about ensuring your workstations are all updated to 3.1.

If Windows Installer (service) files were updated you would need a reboot as the DLLs would be replaced during reboot (Pending File Rename Operations aka PendingFileRenameOperations)
For more info regarding PendingFileRenameOperations see: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/regentry/58499.mspx?mfr=true

You can set the UILevel property from within the package.
That plus the REBOOT=Force ought to give you a reboot without a prompt.
