But if I restart my system It immdiately prompts me to uninstall the application which i have installed. What could be the reason. This is message I get after restart.

Hmm, first, Did you do anything after rebooted in your scripts or custom actions? Suppose LaunchAppAndWait?
If not. Check your sequences and those conditions.
Good Luck! I think the most possible cause of this problem maybe your misdoing.:p

There are no custom actions or actions in rebooted section. But I am using LAunchAndWait methods while installing.

I'd check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce



What special things have you done in your setup? What custom actions do you have? Why do you reboot? Do you use advertised shortcuts?

I am not doing any special action except registering some com dlls and .net dlls using LaunchAndWait method. Apart from this I am not doing any special actions.

It does not prompt me to restart my machine. But If I restart It immdltiately starts uninstall process. Reason I could not find.

I have checked Run and RunOnce. both do not have any default values.
