WMIC OS Where Primary=True Call Reboot will not force reboot when dialog box was open asking to save document. Are there parameter settings, another windows command or a software package that will force the reboot?

Just run the following...
SHUTDOWN -r -f -t 01

In English this is - Shutdown and restart forcing all running apps to close in one seconds time...
for a full list of options for the shutdown command...

Hope that helps...
