How do you get Project/Visio 2016 to run silently and stop it from rebooting after upgrade?
I am a newbie in the realm of creating scripts and packages, so any help is appreciated. I created a Install.MSP file in the "Microsoft Office Customization Tool" to uninstall older versions of Project and Visio and install Project and/or Visio 2016. It installs without a problem with the generic settings, but have run into two issues that I cannot figure out.
Issue #1 - When it finishes the uninstall of the older versions of software, I get a pop-up asking the user if they want to "Upgrade" or "Customize" the installation of Project/Visio 2016. I want this installation to be invisible to the user. I can't seem to find anything online or on the IT Ninja site.
Issue #2 - After the installation of Project or Visio 2016, it reboots right after the installation window pops up. I found an article suggesting to add SETUP_BOOT as Never and AUTO_ACTIVATE = 1 in "Modify Setup properties" to stop the reboot. I made the change in the MSP file, but this did not fix the issue with the reboot. I also found another suggestion to add "REBOOT = ReallySuppress" to "Modify Setup properties" with no luck either.
Any help or suggestions that can be given are very much appreciated.
