Why? There is a limited set of circumstances which require system reboots which are obviously best kept to a minimum, since users dislike them.

As Ian mentioned, there are fue times an actual reboot is required, example during files in-use replacement.
That said; have a look at the ScheduleReboot Action: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa371527(VS.85).aspx

Well

That was a solution fro my deployment problem:

i have to deploy 2 exe.

the first satrts the second one and controls/watches
the first one is thrown in autostart folder.

after installation the first exe is started but could not start the second one telling that it does not exist even after 10 minutes of installation is finished.

so the solution was to restart and the first exe will restart automatically and it succeded starting my second exe.

Any way i fixed the first exe and it's working now after installation without reboot.

I will look at your solution

Thanks for the replies
