Hello all,

I'm new in this forum and I've no experience with SW packaging at all.

I have Checkpoint VPN client msi package, which I want to deploy the way that user sees installation, but can't cancel it and at the end of installation, there should be prompt for reboot.

I've tried install using command-line: msiexec /i package.msi /passive /promptrestart REBOOT=Suppress /l*v c:\temp\vpn.log

This shows installation for user, do not restart automatically, but it does not prompt user to reboot. What I'm doing wrong here?

You have 2 conflicting directives: '/promptrestart' and 'REBOOT=Suppress'.

Delete 'REBOOT=Suppress'.

Hi VBScab,

Thanks for your reply.

I tried at first place with command-line: msiexec /i package.msi /passive /promptrestart /l*v c:\temp\vpn.log, but it conducted reboot automatically.

Apologies, I wasn't concentrating...looking in the log produced, what value has been assigned to the property REBOOTPROMPT?

There is no REBOOTPROMPT property in command-line I've used. Please see my post above.

Correct, which is why I asked you to look in the log which the command line produced in order to find out what value was assigned to it, if any.

Hello VBScab,

And thanks for your efforts helping me. Sorry for late response.

I tried to install this same package again with above command-line. I searched log file for REBOOTPROMPT and found these lines.

MSI (s) (A0:A4) [13:12:30:706]: Command Line: REBOOTPROMPT=S REBOOTPROMPT= CURRENTDIRECTORY=C:\ CLIENTUILEVEL=2 CLIENTPROCESSID=2588

MSI (s) (A0:A4) [13:12:30:753]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding REBOOTPROMPT property. Its value is 'S'.
MSI (s) (A0:A4) [13:12:30:753]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Deleting REBOOTPROMPT property. Its current value is 'S'.

Does this help to solve why auto-reboot occurs, if /passive option is used?
