View Full Version : Force reboot after nerge module

11-11-2003, 11:19 AM

(It seems my problems are opposite from all the others'...)

I use the MDAC 2.8 Merge Module and I want to reboot the machine after the merge (if, of course, a new version were installed), and continue the installation after the reboot.

The problem is as follows:
If either MDAC 2.6 or 2.8 is installed (and no MDAC upgrade is performed), my installation works perfectly.
If, on the other hand, MDAC 2.6 is insalled, MDAC 2.8 gets installed, but one of my utilities that run as part of the installation (DB related, of course) fails to find one of its libraries.
My guess is that since the MDAC MM changes libraries on the fly, and dllcache is in inconsistent state, my utility gets confused.

Bottom-line: How can I force a reboot after the merge module action, and continue with the installation afterwards?

Thank you very much!!
