    Silent installation with redistributables that trigger a reboot ? (2 questions)

    I have an installer with some redistributables that trigger reboot (visual studio redistributables).

    When I run the installer with the GUI, the installer starts, install redistributables and reboot and after the reboot, will resume the installation.

    When I run the intaller silently (with the flags /s /v/qn ); there is a reboot, but the installer does not seem to restart the installer after the reboot.

    In the "Installshield Prerequisite editor"

    Question 1 : in the "specify the command line for the application when the setup is run in silent mode"
    Is the /q /norestart valid to prevent the prerequisite to reboot after it is installed ?

    Question 2: Should the silent installer resume after a reboot ?


    Thanks.

    Try to add quotes, like this: /s /v/"qn "
