Reboots are always required to complete the installation or uninstallation of SSH Tectia Server due to the need to register/unregister a dynamic link library (sshdap.dll).
However, as of version 6.1.3 (or newer) upgrades should not anymore require a reboot.
Starting with 6.1.3 or newer versions of Tectia Server, reboots will only be necessary when upgrading if there have been changes to the sshdap.dll file in the release.
If upgrading from an older version (6.1.2 or earlier) it will still be necessary to do one last reboot, since the changes to not require reboots during upgrades were made to the uninstaller, and in such case the old uninstaller will be used (from 6.1.2 or older) to do this last uninstall.
