Software Question

Reboot MSI-Generator

11/18/2013 3423 views

Hi PACE support,

I am trying to package a software package that requires a reboot.

When i do the reboot and MSI-Gen start up again i perform my final changes and press on "create" second snapshot. It popups with the question if i want to continue or create a new snapshot. Then i press continue. When i do that the snapshot isn't complete with all the changes files and folder.

Is it ok if i use the restart button that the software provides? Or should i reboot manualy?

Greetings Roy

  • Cool, Pace support on ITNinja. Good question then as the documentation doesn't mention any special actions on reboot between snapshots.

Hello showitself! Thank you for your question!

If a "second" system snapshot was done before, MSI Generator asks whether you want to re-use that one or owerwrite it (create a new one now). So in order to include the changes you made to the system this time, you need to select "Overwrite" rather than "Continue".

Hope this helps!


Best Regards,
