    Unanswered: Reboot

    I'm trying to install MSDE through a custom installation program. However, we all know that Microsofts Merge Modules are complete crap so the next best way of doing such a thing is to just call the "setup.exe" for MSDE itself.

    My problem is that the MSDE setup prompts the user for a reboot. How can I supress this reboot so that my user will only have to reboot the machine after my program is installed?

    I was told that the command /qb would work, but for whatever reason, it did not. Any ideas?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated for this is the last "problem" with the current project.

    Figured it out

    I've found this question in a few diffrent places but I could never find a clear cut answer. Hopefully the next person with this problem will find my post....

    The answer is just send the command line "REBOOT=ReallySupress" when calling the setup.exe. I've been told this is case sensative.
