View Full Version : Forcereboot during Un-installation

08-18-2011, 05:45 AM
I'm using BasicMsi project and having a small requirement, to reboot the machine during uninstallation, I used the ForceReboot with (REMOVE="ALL AND Not AFTERREBOOT) condition, but after the reboot i got this message "this installation package could not be opened. verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer".

so, is it possible to use FORCEREBOOT during uninstallation. If yes can you please give me the condiition


Any other way of rebooting the machine during the uninstallation and contuning the uninstallation where i left?.


Windows\installer folder contains the windows installers with some **** names, how can i get the exact name of the uninstaller, so that i can set it in runonce registry and start the uninstaller automatically after a reboot.
