We are running the upgrade.exe to upgrade our windows client base from 12.5 or 12.6 to V13 in silent mode.

We are using upgrade.exe with the -silent parameter and response file as follows: 

contents of response file DHUR021705.rkr 




 Command to be launched:
upgrade -response=C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\V13\DHUR021705.rkr -silent 


At the end of the silent installation the system is not restarted, there is a prompt to restart the server “Harvest upgrade install will not be complete until the machine is restarted. Do you want to restart now?" 


Expected behaviour would be that system is restarted to complete the silent upgrade



Environment:Windows OSPlanning deployment Harvest 12.5 or 12.6 client upgrading to Harvest 13

Development has found a way for this silent upgrade to complete as expected.

In the response file used, DHUR021705.rkr please add the below option as well: 


This option will suppress the modal dialog box which appears at the end of the silent install and this will automatically restart the machine on it's own without the prompt appearing to the end user.
