using qtp script i am installing application using sms advertisement. The application after installation reboots(force reboots after 30 secs after installation is done). I would like to take the screen shots which requires me to export to pdf file. my question is: is there a way for reboot to stop for few mins as shutdown -a command after installation/uninstallation stops the force reboot. Shutdown -a works only during final installation process. How do i sync the timings of entering shutdown -a. as different applications take different times to install. is there a way in qtp to sync this.
