Our product uses a driver that cannot be stopped. On upgrade We want to
replace driver SYS file only, let new driver load on next reboot, I donot
want to force user to REBOOT.

We have installing/uninstalling driver using custom Action and

It is failing to upgrade, installation is failing with error 1603 error

CustomAction VMInstallMYDriverAction returned actual error code 1603 (note
this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
MSI (s) (F4:3C) [04:21:40:933]: Closing MSIHANDLE (883) of type 790536 for
thread 1360
Action ended 4:21:40: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.
