Many applications come up with a message after installation stating you must now restart the Computer.

Some packagers and Instructors are taught that during the setup capture of an application you MUST restart the Computer to capture any file updates and or registry changes that take place.

This is not always true.

Many times after the installation of an application simply running any and or all shortcuts that are created before doing the End Capture will update or create the Registry keys and files needed for the application package to work properly. Being able to bypass the restart during the setup capture does save time and depending what kind of environment you are packaging in (hopefully a VMware OS only environment) you will not capture any Registry keys or files that are not needed for the application package to function properly.

I have found that doing the steps above works atleast 80% of the time.
