How to catch which dlls are causing the server to restart unexpectedly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows Server 2012 R2. When I install a msi, Windows installer gives me a prompt telling that system will restart in 60 seconds. How can I catch which dlls are forcing the machine for reboot? Or how can we provide handle at the folder level to know which dlls are the culprit for force reboot?

    I tried this :

    Get-Eventlog -Logname System -Newest 1 -Source "USER32" | Format-List

    This outputs only about the process, time, username, etc. I want to know the specific dll name behind the issue. How can I do that?

    Thanks in advance for your help!
