Subject: Re: [wix-users] Burn engine hangs when run silently

I run my installer in silent/quiet mode, but it looks like the burn uithread (ThreadProc) is still running, and pumping messages until the window is closed. Why would the engine make a window if running in quiet mode? What does this window do?
