Suite installation - triggering system reboot after each setup installation

Thu Dec 16, 2021 8:09 am

Hi,

Have you ever had the task to bundle multiple setup packages into a suite installer and trigger a system reboot after some of the bundled packages installation?

If so, this task should be fairly simple to implement with Advanced Installer.

All you need to do is to create a master setup project and add all of the setup packages you want to bundle in the "Prerequisites" view of the master setup project. Then you should just enable the "Reboot system after installing this prerequisite" option for the prerequisite setups you need to trigger a system reboot.

Here you can find a download link for a sample implementing this scenario.

The sample contains a suite installation setup including three prerequisite installers. The suite installer will trigger a system reboot after each prerequisite installation.

Here are the detailed steps you need to follow to implement this task:

1. create a new "Enterprise" project type (this will be used as the master suite installation that will bundle several packages inside it)

2. go to "Prerequisites" page and add all the setup packages you want to bundle as pre-install prerequisites

3. check the "Reboot system after installing this prerequisite" option for the prerequisites you need to trigger a system reboot

4. build and test the suite installation setup

That's all, now you have built a suite installation setup that will trigger system reboots after the bundled setup installations.

All the best,
