Windows msiexec may request a reboot if some of the Windows agent's files(directories) were locked during installation procedure. Such reboot is performed automatically and immediately when the installation is silent. And silent installation is a typical use case for Windows agent update routine.
Evidently, this kind of spontaneous host's reboot is inacceptable in most cases and since this release will be fully suppressed.
It is important to note that although a reboot will be prevented, it is the user's responsibility to reboot the host at convenient time. It is also strongly recommended to find out which software and for what reason locks the files/directories in the Windows agent's directories.To the list of all Werks
