Is there any way to suppress a reboot to an installation that reboots automatically after install w/o providing a dialog box?
It looks like its a installshield setup, external cabs, application name PAL 4.3, i tried it with a response file and all possbile switches, but there is no option/dialog box thats pops up to restart later 'yes' 'no' kinda thing, so it reboots as soon as installation is complete without any warning... and they want to create a wrapper as far as possible, so repackaging is not a option currently...
So any ideas of any sort?

If you install the MSI using a command line you can have:
msiexec /i <MSI> REBOOT=R
msiexec /i <MSI> REBOOT=ReallySuppress.

This property should then stop the reboot from taking place.

Hope this is what your looking for?

Thats the problem.. its not an msi, and there isnt an intergrated msi in the setup either, looks like its developed in Installshield btw, so msi switches dont work.. and REBOOT=Suppress/ReallySuppress doesnt work either.... so ive tried those switches..so far no luck :(

Hi Tyron123,

Try this command line
Setup.exe /v REBOOT=R or REBOOT=ReallySuppress
