Restart Manager does not appear to restart Windows Explorer during install.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • During an installation of our product we receive the MsiRMFilesInUse dialog which indicates that Windows Explorer needs to be closed.  If we choose the option to close the app and continue, Explorer appears to stop, the installation continues to completion, but Explorer does not restart.  What would cause this?

    The only thing we see is the desktop background, no icons or taskbar and the machine must be powered off.

    We're also trying to find out what is bumping up against Windows Explorer during our intsallation.  I think I have it narrowed down to the inclusion third party components via Merge Modules, but not quite sure yet as we can't recreate the behavior consistently.

    Any help, info, tips would be more than Greatly appreciated!


    Thank You
