Re: Windows installer kick-off


Hash: SHA1
hello steve,

                   I have made some installers for windows using
install shield at work.  Anyways,  when a package is made for windows
we reboot a machine only when there is "Registry Hardening" thats is
required. If it is a service based system, we script a custom action;
meaning a trigger in the installer which run and restarts the service.
I think a reboot is necessary if and only if registry keys or any kind
of virtual or physical device are modified from my experience.

Best Regards

Jose M Manimala
