I'm trying to install Visual C# Express 2010 unattended, how can I suppress the reboot

If I install VC# normally, it will install many components and ask for a reboot in the middle of the installation. If I install it silently using the /q switch, it will reboot without asking.

The only way I found to suppress the reboot is installing .NET 4.5 befor installing VC#, but 4.5 isn't compatible with WinXP, so this doesn't work on all of our machines.

Does anybody know how I can suppress the reboot? It would be enough if I would have to manually reboot after the installation

  • It's public property, so you will need to specify it in CAPITALS - as VBScab mentioned. - dunnpy 10 years ago
