Oh interesting. Did you maintain a separate list of files for your app, check on install directory? Thanks!

Are there any other msi, wix, etc properties that can be used to detect just my app's problem files? Maybe a file in a certain directory is marked with the "Must reboot to complete operation" ?

I had exactly the same situation.  I ended up looking at
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc960241.aspx.  By walking
the entries here, the installer can identify the pending file
operations that are related to itself.  If it sees any, it will refuse
to continue.  That solved the issue for us.
