Is there any way to force an update to not autoreboot and is there any way to completely install The Microsoft Net Framework without any user intervention.  When I run it with the /q command it still asks for me to accept the EULA.

Dear stevecuccia,

Answering to your first question , after doing the update it would basically ask if you want to reboot or not .
If you want you can reboot the machine orelse you neednot. But without doing rebooting , update is not effective..

Not sure which one you are talking about in which the system reboots automatically without asking you ..
I have not seen any update doing the reboot without human intervention

Thanks,
Sunray

No - I have all these files downloaded to a CD and I am making a unattended install with these updates being install automattically. I have them run with a batch file but they automatically reboot with the /q parameter.

You can use qchain.exe with -z switch.

To install a Windows product update on a single computer, run the product update program on the computer that you want to update. To install multiple product updates without restarting the computer between each installation, use the /z switch.
