Howto ask to the user at the end if wants to reboot?


In my Basic MSI proyect, I need, at the end of the installation, to ask to the user if wants to reboot or not (regardless of the windows state. The installer will not do any that would force to do it by itself), would be the user how decide to do it or not. 

Does it possible to do it automatically using any installshield preconfigure parameter?, if not?, how could do it?

Here is a link to the official Microsoft documentation about the REBOOT MSI property:

Please give this suggestion a try. Does this work for you?

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!
