Good day!


I make some new version of installation (from 1.2 to 1.3) , and make some little changes- (add new column at sql table).


So, at my PC it works well,but at customer PC after install InstallShield 2009 writes,that it need to reboot.


How to fix it? What reason it may be?


My OS- Win7x64.


Thank you!

Generally this means a file needs to be replaced but the file was in use at the time of the install. Hence the install schedules the file to be replaced on reboot. The file that this relates to can be one of your own application files, or a file included in a merge module. You should make a full log file and search for "scheduling reboot" or "reboot" or similar.


Create a verbose log like this: msiexec.exe /I "C:\Install.msi" /QN /L* "C:\Temp\msilog.log"
