Windows Installer Auto-Close of Applications

    My application contains DLL's that load in Internet Explorer.

    When the uninstall for my application is started, Windows Installer will automatically check if any of my files are in use, and if so, will put up a dialog box asking the user to close these applications before continuing with the uninstall.

    My question is, how do I stop Windows Installer from doing this?  I have written my own custom action that takes care of telling the user to close IE, and does other stuff.  But apparently Windows Installer performs this function before it runs any of my custom actions. Mad

    Is there any way to stop it from performing this check?
