Dear all,

do we have a possibility to prevent that the user start a program during the update installation?

Our problem is that we check that all affected programs are closed before the installation starts. During the installation (about 20 minutes) a lot of users start the program which to be upgraded and then we have problems to replace DLLs or programs within the installation.

It would be nice if we can prevent the program start of office programs like Word, Excel, Outlook or other programs (example).
