View Full Version : ForceReboot action in Called MSI - problem after reboot

Yes, this is a problem with setup.exe behaviour. I've reported about this
already. Windows is not fully loaded before your ForceReboot begis reboot
as it was explained me in InstallShield when I was there on Lab a few days
ago. They've filed already the feature on this issue. Now the workaround is
to install Windows Installer 1.1 before your installation.

Hey, InstallShield fellows, you see I am not alone with this problem!

I'm calling another MSI file (Access 2000 SP1 runtime) and it has a ForceReboot action in it that we have determined is very necessary. The problem I have run into is that when the computer restarts, the Access install completes but it does not launch back into our installer.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to handle this, or if there is something I'm missing.
