Hi team,


I have a application which is having 2 executable files. 

1.exe and 2.exe , reboot is require after install every executable file. Please suggest me how can implement this.

Once reboot done (1st executable file installed and reboot), SCCM should start 2nd executable file.

  • Before doing anything, I'd find out why the package requires a restart in the first place. Vendors are notorious for forcing restarts which aren't strictly necessary.

    Secondly, I'd never EVER install an EXE to a client's estate. You need to know EXACTLY what an EXE is going to do to a workstation because, again, vendors are notorious for wreaking havoc by blindly walking over your carefully-crafted build!

Purely to provide the technical answer.

Have a look at SCCM Task Sequences. I know in SCCM 2007 you can "do something", reboot computer (after reboot SCCM knows to carry on with the Sequence), "do something again", reboot.

I had a deployment in the past which was quite complex due to *cough'sh*te'cough* vendor software which required about 3 reboots due uninstalls/installs etc.

In SCCM 2012 its slightly different as you have Task Sequences and Applicaiton Sequences. At a guess I would think the Task Sequences would suite your needs as it has the reboot function aval out of the box. 


On a side note VBScab does raise a good point.
