Hi there,

we would like to work with CloseAppsCountdown (in Version 3.5.0) but the Problem is, the counter are not displayed.
Can anyone tell me why?
We try out different forms but this not working, no counter possible.

Show-InstallationWelcome -CloseApps 'greenshot' -CloseAppsCountdown 60 -PersistPrompt

Need more input :)

with best regards

I am having the same issue. Have you gotten anything to work?

You have to use -ForceCloseAppsCountdown <Int32>

This example does not display a countdown. Should it?

prompt the user to close Word and Excel, with customized descriptions for the applications and automatically close the applications after 10 minutes.

Show-InstallationWelcome -CloseApps 'winword=Microsoft Office Word,excel=Microsoft Office Excel' -CloseAppsCountdown 600

And is there a trick to the InstallationUI_Timeout paramter in the XML file? I wanted to see if it worked so I set it to something shorter and the dialog did not timeout.
