Patching multiple products

During a minor upgrade patch (REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL), the patching process stops after patching the first product when two or more products are already installed on the machine.

Am I wrong in assuming the patch process should continue, patching the second, then the third product (etc. for all products already installed), then ask to reboot?

The PCP file lists all the prodcuts to upgrade. I am not sure what the problem is.

Currently you can only patch one product at a time.

Hi Stefan,

So creating a patch to patch multiple productcodes is not possible?

It is possible to create a multi target patch (target multi productcodes). As attachment you'll find a sample.
Install the products of the folders "Deutsch" and "English" and apply the patch. You'll see that the patching process executes two times.
Hope this help.
