Quit the Apple Installer to allow multiple installs
Authored by: aranor on Dec 12, '03 01:12:20PM

Yes, but what if you want to install with a different installer, or just plain don't want to restart yet because you know there's no ill effects and you'd rather finish what you were doing?

I understand if you simply don't want to restart, but what do you mean "if you want to install with a different installer"? The point is, you can install more than one package before quitting Installer. Anyway, what's the difference between a Dock-based quit and a fore quit?

What if you want to install something that uses VISE installer or one of the other non-Apple installers?

And the difference between dock-quit and force-quit is dock-quit is a graceful quit and force-quit is just that, a force-quit. If I can gracefully quit an application, I don't want to force-quit it.
