I think you have to set a policy on your computer(s) to disable the
restart manager, because as it says here:
"Silent UI level installations always shut down applications and
services, and on Windows Vista, always use Restart Manager."
So you have to set the "DisableAutomaticApplicationShutdown" policy as
But remember: preventing processes from restarting and expecting a
reboot but not automatically reboot leaves the system in an unstable
state because only *some* of the files got replaced, not all. I guess
that's why msi doesn't let you do this easily.
At least with an UI install, the user is aware of the problem - for
silent installs, the user would not know that and I guess that's why
it's not possible to do that.
