After transform is installed pc is rebooting.

After installing the package (transform), pc is rebooting. Searched for reboot in my transform, changed few properties to No, removed one custom action with reboot but after the install it is still rebooting. Does anyone know what else can be done to stop that?

Installed the same package on my test pc and the image keeps on restarting over and over, while it works with only one restart on VMWare. I searched in Properties and nothing, what else should i be looking for?

Thanks,
XaviorPL

Tried to add REBOOT = R property to my transform. Application will never install, it will start and then was unable to finish installation.

Any other suggestions?


Once again, i want to have the package install without msi rebooting the system.

Thanks

Does it not require a reboot installing the MSI without the MST?
What application is it?
What have you added to the MST?

Try the property REBOOT=ReallySuppress

REBOOT=ReallySuppress and REBOOT=R are the same thing (or should act the same way)

What does your log say? Turn on verbose logging and see if that gives you any more information.

often vendor's have a custom reboot property

It may also be

Reboot
RebootYesNo

I dont know why they do this but they do. I guess they must of worked at Adobe for some time or something !

Have you tried to discover WHY a reboot is required?

- Often it's because the vendor is too bone idle to code his app properly and wants his INSTALLDIR added to the PATH. 99 times out of 100, Mr Lazy Vendor will add that to the System path and that normally doesn't get updated until after a reboot (Yes, I *know* about the system update API call but have found that WI isn't 100% reliable with that). In that case, you can change from System path to User path and it will come into effect immediately.

- If it's because the MSI is updating a file which is in use, you need to find that out (check out the registry key HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations) BEFORE the reboot takes place. That will tell you which file(s) is (are) involved.

Thanks guys,

Adding property REBOOT=ReallySuppress solved the problem.

I tried both REBOOT=R and it was still rebooting, so in my case REBOOT=ReallySuppress fixed the issue with application rebooting. Beside that i had to remove custom actions from MST, but not sure if that was needed with REBOOT=ReallySuppress.

VBScab,

I wanted to have MSI clean without any reboots. Reboot was required with my application but that would be done by team which will actually deply my MSI package, they will restart PC at the end of the process.

Thanks,
