Batch file to restart after running exe

I have this script that's supposed to run an installation exe with switches, then restart the computer.
Is this the correct way to do it?
It seems to run the install on the XP machine and reboot, but the output  in DOS window says this:

'\\server1\deploy\CitrixClient'
CMD.EXE was started with the above path as the current directory.
UNC paths are not supported.  Defaulting to Windows directory.
Upgrading Citrix Client
Do not close this window. It will close when the installation is complete.


Also how do I add support to the code to reboot a vista computer, do I just add an additional line at the end that says shutdown /r /f /t 01?


Adding this to vbscript department also in case there's a vbscript out there that can do this better.

 
@ECHO OFF
ECHO Upgrading Citrix Client
ECHO Do not close this window. It will close when the installation is complete. 
\\server1\deploy\CitrixClient\CitrixOnlinePluginFull.exe /silent ADDLOCAL="ICA_Client,PN_Agent,SSON" ENABLE_SSON="yes" SERVER_LOCATION="http://server1"
shutdown -r -f -t 01

Open in new window

you can do with a batch file, just map the share to a drive first (net use X:) using a drive letter that's known not to be in use, then run your install from the mapped drive then disconnect the mapping (net use X: /YES /del) then reboot.
actually, since you're not mapping with a /persistent switch the reboot makes the disconnect unnecessary

The message about the current directory does not matter. It appears if you use a UNC path as working directory - DOS cannot change directory to a UNC path, that is why the message appears. As long as you aren't using the current directory for anything, it does not matter.

With Vista (and above) you should provide a reason for shutting down with the   /d p:4:2   and    /c "Citrix installed"   parameters. I recommend to put two shutdown commands into your script, one for XP and older, one for Vista and more recent. One will fail, the other one run.

You get the error because you run
\\server\share\script.cmd instead of X:\script.cmd

It's a warning, not an error. If you would like to hide it you could try:
@ECHO OFF
CLS
ECHO Upgrading Citrix Client
...

shutdown /r /f /t 01 works in XP also.
