MsiSystemRebootPending property

The installer sets the value of the MsiSystemRebootPending property to 1 if there is an operation pending to rename a file.

Package authors can base a condition in the LaunchCondition table on this property to prevent the installation of their package in cases where there is an operation pending to rename a file. This may be done to prevent a restart of the operating system caused by the renaming of the file. The installer does not set the MsiSystemRebootPending property in all cases that require a restart of the system.
