UI Level: Basic is Automatically Rebooting Regardless


I am using dotNetInstaller to install prerequisites for an MSI using WiX. It's a great tool and it is doing exactly what I want it to do.

The only problem is when I set it up at UI Level: Basic and one of the prerequisites sends a reboot signal (1641, 3010) which I have listed under the "returncodes_reboot" field; however when this code is received by the installer it shows the reboot message briefly (Warning the user the system needs a reboot) before it automatically reboots. This is obviously a problem as I would like to give the user a chance to close what they're doing etc and save before it reboots.

The installer log is attached.

We are seeing this issue as well. We have multiple prerequisites (.NET, VSTO, etc.) which require reboots. Not being able to suppress the reboot and have the app reboot just once, is a major problem for us.
