    Snooze reboot dialog??


      I looked at the options in the installation behaviors, and I couldn't figure out how to make the reboot optional/snooze-able (for installations that require a reboot) for the end user when an end user is logged in. Similar to the behavior that happens when patches are applied by LANDesk. Can anyone point me in the right direction? The install package source is a single MSI file if that makes a difference.

          If you are pushing the package through Software Distribution using a delivery method, the reboot behavior/snooze option is not available.  Those options are available for Patch manager.


          If that is a requirement you can pretty easily create a custom definition that installs the MSI which would give you the reboot control.


          Sorry for the bad news, this is something that I hope we are able to change soon.

            you can create a message in your package which pop up, if a user is logged on...


            Take a look in the following docs which could help:

            How to use Registry Keys in a Batch File


            Currently I've got nearly the same question from a collegue, so I'll think about...


            One first quick idea, check this registry entry:


            HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion\ Winlogon \ AltDefaultUserName


            HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion\ Winlogon \ DefaultUserName


            With AutoIT:

             Global $loggegInUser = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\", "AltDefaultUserName") 
             Msgbox(64, "Value", $loggegInUser)

            With batch s. the links above, you can use this command line:

             reg query "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon" /v AltDefaultUserName
