View Full Version : Prerequisites and Reboots - Installation will not Continue

I've created a prerequisite in which I suppress the reboot. After the prerequisite finishes installing, it closes down the complete installation without displaying any messages.

Does anyone know how to let the prerequisite complete and still have the installation continue?

Thanks is advance for any assistance.

What this means is per return code or RunOnce key, the prerequisite engine has detected the need for a reboot and assumes the prerequisite has either kicked one off or the user has cancelled. As such the safe thing to do is exit the install and prepare to be launched after the reboot.

In our upcoming release of InstallShield we're making this behavior more configurable so you will be able to better handle cases like these.
