[wix-users] Getting around a 3rd party installer's reboot requirement

What is the exit code of the 3rd party installer when a reboot is requested?

It sounds like you need to add an ExitCode Behavior=forceReboot to your ExePackage element for the 3rd party installer which isn't using standard exit codes.

I'm using a bundle to manage a couple of my own installers plus a 3rd party installer.  The 3rd party requires a reboot to complete installation which is causing my bundle to hang indefinitely or fail if I exit the 3rd party installer.  Any thoughts on how to circumvent the reboot requirement?
