Re: "The setup must update files or service that cant be update while the system ..."

If you have your install generate a verbose log file then once it hits this error and you close out of the installer (to flush the log file) then search the log file for "in use" and it should show what it thinks is causing the issue(s). Could be more than one file, too.

Once you know what file(s) are "in use" then you can formulate a plan as to how to resolve it.
