For Nuance PDF Converter i am sure you should delete the custom action for REBOOT. Because It deletes the printer installed by the application. Please check under Installation > Execute > Reboot Custom Action..

  • Also check, is there any custom action which is triggering the reboot process..
  • There is no such property as RebootYesNo=Yes. However, I have seen this in many msi's. Will look out for it in future for sure
  • What is the Application name?
  • Nuance PDF Converter Enterprise 8.0
  • RebootYesNo=Yes is there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.. I have posted the screen shot below
  • oops.. didn't notice.. Thanks a lot. :-)
  • Is this a built in property or a user defined / customized one? just asking this out of enthusiasm.. I'm an amateur in terms of packaging..

Are you doing this with an MSI or other setup.exe?  What does the vendor say - have you checked their documentation?  Many times, if it's a setup.exe, you can find out what syntax the exe uses to disable restarting.   If it's an MSI, check the property and custom action tables to see if there's a non-standard reboot property or action to reboot.
