Why is a reboot required after installing the MSI engine?

On some systems you need to reboot after running instmsia.exe or instmsiw.exe to install the Windows Installer runtime engine, before your real setup can launch.  A reboot is needed because the operating system has msi.dll running in memory so the Windows Installer files are not replaced until after the reboot.  This happens on systems with a shell version that includes the Windows desktop update, like Windows 98 and 2000, and Systems with IE4.01 SP1. For more information see Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q262974.

The need for a reboot after installing or updating the MSI runtime files has been eliminated in Windows Installer version 2.0, where the reboot can be postponed until the main setup has finished.
