exclusive module running - please add

is present at [Behavior] in .apm files. this setting shall prevent that any other module be selected also, preventing mistakes that may result in big crashes

beside that, we also have this:
so, you also can prevent 2 modules with that tag by selecting the OS to that module be showed (you will not apply sp1 over sp2, of course). also, at module checking, autopatcher.exe can check that and disable those modules if more than one is found to the same OS sp
edit: other idea, since you may very well have some sort of update that also can't run with other things running at same time: if AP detects that there's 2 or more exclusive modules, AP reports that, saying that the user just can chose one of those at at once

With the alert idea, what happens if the user selects an unattended install?
I'm not trying to shoot down your idea, by the way, just pointing out some points where it might fall over.

AP shall prevent that, giving you an alert about that. at least, saying something like: ALERT: more than one exclusive update selected. continue anyway? and it shall happend even for unattended install, to prevent crash an entire system because someone was too lazzy to think about "dude, this one shall be installed alone". ms doesn't do that sometimes? so, why ap can't? just imagine, someone running sp2 or even an sp3 and several other updates at same time. i'm not even talking about antiviruses programs, but what happends if?
about shot down, i believe that talking about something can lead to better options to prevent entire system crash.

The user has to select only one that the user want to install first and unmark other exclusive updates.
Exclusive should stay exclusive; no other update(s) should run alongside.
If being exclusive means it only has the added alert, then it's not exactly exclusive at all.
