View Full Version : Restart application automatically

10-30-2002, 09:23 AM

I'm trying to apply a patch using the AutoUpdate method.
When the patch ran it detected that my application was still running and asked to close it and try again. Now I quit the program automatically after calling AutoUpdate but I would like to have it started again after applying the patch.
So it should behave like this:
- application starts
- call AutoUpdate
- quit
- patch runs
- application starts again automatically

Basically, I need this to prevent that users have to launch the program twice (once to update and once to start working with it).

Is this possible?

Launch the application from within your patch, after the files have been transferred. (In InstallShield Professional, you can do this by calling the LaunchAppAndWait function.)
