Systems Management Question
VMware ViewAgent 5.1.1 - Supress the reboot during the initial run.
When we run this software VMware ViewAgent 5.1.1, It requests for a reboot of the machine even before it stats installing. How do we avoid the reboot.
This is what it happens:
When I double click on the VMware ViewAgent 5.1.1 MSI file, it throws an message "A system reboot is required before the installation can continue"
In a MSI we can supress the reboot after installation, can we supress before installation?

Check out this software article: http://www.itninja.com/software/vmware-inc/vmware-view-client/5-1-0
Under the scripts portion I've gotten the script I run as an install.bat. I've used this to sucessfully deploy the View Client to dozens of people. Granted it's 5.1.0 but, because it's an MSI if you add the /norestart switch it shouldn't force you to restart. As well the /qn will make it silent.
Are you pushing it, or installing it manually? You might try running it silently and see if it still throws a fit about restarting.
