How to modify an MSI to ignore pending reboot flag

We are trying to install multiple software products back to back as part of an automated installation process. For many of these installers, when we use the vendor provided EXE, they install just fine. However, once we create an MSI in InstallShield, they will fail to install because they detect a pending reboot. In most cases, these are 'false positives', and we would like to modify the MSI to ignore this warning and install anyway. How would we do this?

Thanks

You can remove the install/launch condition that is checking for a pending system reboot from the General Information view. You can do this when editing an ISM or MSI file.
