How to force reboot after uninstall for a Basic MSI Project in InstallShield 2009

InstallShield 2009 Premier, Basic MSI Project:

After uninstall completes, I want to force restart the computer. How?

Normally after uninstall InstallShield doesn't want/prompt any reboot. But for some reason I do need it.

I did set "REBOOT=Force" "REBOOTPROMPT=Supress" properties from "Behavior and Logic"->"Property Manager". But didn't work.

Those properties only control how Windows Installer will react if a reboot is requested. You don't indicate whether a reboot is requested, and the lack of one suggests it is not. That said, rebooting someone's machine without prompting is not a nice thing to do to your users.

How would I send a reboot request to the installer ?

Ok I got it. I have to set "Conditions" to "REMOVE" from "Custom Actions and Sequences"/Installations/Execute.

And for my case I have to add a value "REBOOTPROMPT" with value "Suppress" in the Property Manager which can be found in "Behavior and Logic"
