I did this through a transform and directly modifying the msi with InstEd.
This did not affect the behavior of the silent installation in any way. If
you run the msi with the transform and go through the installer manually, no
Restart Manager dialogs appear, but the Files In Use dialog will appear
saying that "Windows Explorer (Process Id: xxxx)" is "using files that need
to be updated by this setup. Close these applications and then click Retry
to continue the installation or Cancel to exit it." There are three buttons
at the bottom of the window: "Exit, Ignore, and Retry". Pressing "Ignore"
finishes the installation like normal, updating the locked files upon reboot
(the exact process I am looking for, if I could press the "Ignore" button at
the Files In Use dialog while having it completely silent then everything
would be perfect!). The msi is still closing Explorer without the Restart
Manager, which means that there is something else controlling the process
killing during silent installs. Is the FilesInUse dialog closing running
processes on its own?
