Okay, my success was transitory. By using the command line msiexec.exe /i MySetup.msi /qn, the installer will still shut down Outlook if it's running and restart it. I would like to have the behavior of installing the add-in, but keeping Outlook open. The new version wouldn't be available in Outlook until the user restarts it. We're doing the installs via SCCM, and don't want to have a user be in the middle of editing something and have the app suddenly vanish.

For some reason, this has worked before, but now it will always restart. Of course I can't think of what's different. Could it have anything to do with a new version of the bootstrapper?

Just an aside : I'm pleased there are still people in software development who remember Gilda :)
