Does anyone know of an application that will let you install a package, then show a screen with a timer before the system reboots, also allowing the user to defer that reboot for a pre-specified amount of time?

You can create an exe using AutoIT. 

http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/downloads/

This will prompt the user with a box to click ok or cancel. With a timeout of 60 seconds. 

$answer = MsgBox(4, "Software Restart", "Your computer need to be restarted complete the install. Click yes to restart now or no to cancel.", 60)

If $answer = 7 Then

     Exit

 EndIf

Shutdown(6)

  • It is capable of doing progress bars, so it should be able to do a timer of some sort.
