Hello Abdul,

Please note that you should set the reboot behavior setting on "Install Parameters" page to "Force reboot after install" option.

This is because the Windows Installer reboot mechanism cannot detect the system reboots required by the effect of a custom action run as part of the installation. And our "Windows Features" support is indeed handled through a custom action.

All the best,
