Reboot request on Windows 2008 during msi uninstall

During uninstalling application, the following message may appear:
"The setup must update files or services that cannot be updated while the system is running. If you choose to continue, a reboot will be required to complete the setup."

However, there is no need for reboot as all services are stopped before removing any files.

To suppress reboot request, set the REBOOT property to ReallySuppress
