I am doing an upgrade for the existing exe file using installshield. when installing the update , in files in use dialog I select the option to automatically close and restart the application instead of the other option to reboot the system. But I get an extra window which tells me to restart the system again after installation is complete. How to disable this window? Please help :)
You can try to run the installation silently with REBOOT=ReallySuppress (update the paths). Please note that I haven't had the chance to test all these command lines:
msiexec.exe /I "C:\IsWiX.msi" /QN /L*V "C:\msilog.log" REBOOT=ReallySuppress
<li>/I is for install </li>
<li>/QN is silent mode</li>
<li>/L* is verbose logging</li>
If you have an EXE file instead of an MSI file I would extract the MSI to an administrative image (file extract from setup.exe basically) using the following command:
Then specify an extract location for the files in the EXE file. You can also run it directly with the <strong>Installshield command lines for EXE files</strong>. Something like:
Setup.exe /v"REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qn"
Or silently with logging:
Setup.exe /v"/l*v c:\test.log REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qn"
