Behavior Tab Setting of the InstallShield Prerequisite Editor - If the Prerequisite Appears To Need a Reboot

Behavior Tab Setting of the InstallShield Prerequisite Editor - If the Prerequisite Appears To Need a Reboot

Summary

Specific behavior using InstallScript project when working in the Prerequisite Editor

Synopsis

Relevant to InstallScript Projects

The setting for prerequisite reboot behavior ?Note it, fail to resume if the machine is rebooted, and reboot after the installation? is intended to work for Basic MSI based installations and is not relevant for pure InstallScript projects. The intended design when using this setting relies on the MSI property ISSCHEDULEREBOOT being set.


Discussion

At run time, the value of the Windows Installer property ISSCHEDULEREBOOT is set to 1 in the main installation when a restart is still pending.

The prerequisite setting is located on the Behavior Tab when using the InstallShield Prerequisite Editor.

Using the drop down field under ?If the prerequisite appears to need a reboot? the selection is ? Note it, fail to resume if the machine is rebooted, and reboot after the installation?.

Additional Information

In a pure InstallScript project there is no native functionality to note the prerequisite reboot, fail to resume and reboot after install. There is an enhancement request for this functionality to be added for InstallScript projects being tracked under the number IOJ-1591339.
