New Client forces restart during installation

Recommended Posts

While installing the new client and after the progress was completed, the installer immediately attempted to restart my computer without warning. I was able to cancel the restart as I had other apps running that it was attempting to close and windows prompted me. Upon cancellation I noticed that the installer was at the part where it asks for you to select to restart now or later. I hadn't touched anything nor did I press continue. The box was still awaiting confirmation, yet the client attempted a forced restart.

 

I don't think this is intended and seems to be the result of some rogue code somewhere, but you could guess the problems it may cause. I had a Word document open that was work related and I was working on and nearly caused me a heart attack.

 

Should be looked into.

same happened to me.. i guess its the first time an installation executable didn't lie to me, i REALLY should have saved all my other processes and logged out of them, because for the first time installing anything in the last 20 years i lost some hours of work lol

Isn't it the VC Redist that looks for a reboot? when i got the prompt i told it to go suck a lemon and it works fine without a reboot.

Same thing happened to me. Ran the installer, turned around for a second and my PC had rebooted on its own. Windows 10 Home version.

The reboot happens before the prompt. You can't tell it to go suck a lemon because it reboots the computer for you before it asks. 

 

Maybe it was different for you, but that's how it seems to be happening to some people.
