For many aplication is necessary reboot Windows.
It will be usefull find an utility for scheduling reboot.
The utility shall do so:

1) first application install setup
2) reboot
3) second application setup
4) third application setup
5) reboot
6) ...other installations.


Exist this utility? Or a batch file with a similar functionality?

WPI has a internal %reboot% function.


With %reboot% function I can call another unattended setup after reboot?

Excuse me Kelsenellenelvian I don't understand what you say.

For example.

1) start my first unattended setup
2) call your %reboot% function in WPI
3) Windows restart, but at next boot how can I say to windows next unattended setup?
I'd like that this operation will be automatic.

According to you at step 3 I'd have to restart WPI, lanch other unattended setups and recall %reboot% command?

I have read forum someone says to insert a runonce registry key at every boot so I can automatically start an application or an unattended setup, but I want to know if exist an utility with similar functionalities.
