I've repackaged Finale Notepad 2006 but have a problem where a critical font's registry entry (in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts key) disappears after a certain period. I've made this registry entry a keypath and can successfully repair this when the application is launched. Because Windows won't pick this change up until next boot, I either need to prompt the user to reboot, or make Windows refresh it's list of fonts. Any suggestions appreciated. The MSI is installed per machine with reboot=reallysupress if that makes any difference.

You should be able to set the REBOOT property to "Force" by using a set property Custom Action (Type 51). Applying the following condition on the Custom Action


would have the effect of setting the REBOOT property to Force during any self-repair, but would leave it set at ReallySuppress during the initial installation or during uninstallation.
