Dependencies & Reboot

Hi everyone!

I created two applications : IBM i Access V7R1 and Visual C++ Redistributable 2005.

Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable needs to be installed before IBM i Access so I create a dependency.

When C++ is installed, it is restarting but the installation of IBM i Access is not launching because there is a maintenance Window. Since the deployment purpose is available, I cannot choose the options to install outside of a maintenance window.

I don't want my users to go in software center, click on install, the computer restart, and then go back in software center to launch the installation again. I would not have this problem if a reboot was not necessary between the installation of these 2 applications.

I hope I'm clear and someone could help me with this.

Thank you!

I'm not sure if there is a way around this unless you use a task sequence.

Once the reboot happens, user actions in Software Center are not remembered to my knowledge. Sounds like a design change request (DCR) to file on though.

I did try with a task sequence. Everything is working flawlessly aside of the user notifications that cannot be hidden (I think so?) and the fact that I won't be able to make use of supersedence.

I would have like to deploy it like all my other applications but anyway, I will file a DCR.

Thank you!
