Problem:

When performing a silent uninstall of a Patch Update, prior to the subsequent install of another Patch Update, the system reboots after the uninstall and the installation of the new Patch Update fails.

 

Resolution:

For Visual Cobol / Cobol Server versions 4.0 and earlier, the system reboot after the silent uninstall of a Patch Update it is unavoidable

The workaround is to install the new Patch Update first and then uninstall the old Patch Update, thereby the reboot will be performed only once the whole operation is complete.

This issue will be addressed from version 5.0 onwards.
