Hi, i'm using InstallShield X Express; and i have to install MSDE and then run a script to generate the Database.

When i tried installing MSDE as a merged object !!! i didnt' feel like it was installed !!! maybe i did an error !!! but when i launch from within my setup the MSDE setup, everything is fine, untill the time i'm asked to reboot !!! My database is not created and the service is not started yet !!!!

How can i reboot my PC and resume installation from where it was suspended ??

Any help would be appreciated !!!!

N.B.: I'm using Express Edition !!!!! i don't see how i can write InstallScripts !!!

Unfortunately the functionality you are looking for is not possible with the Express version. You would want to do this type of functionality in the Professional or premier editions. These would allow you to insert actions to force a reboot and resume the installation. The key is the ability to insert things into the execute sequence.
