install 6u10
Launch browser and swingset demo
run 6u11 install
The Close Application dialog (a.k.a. our FilesInUse dialog) will be displayed.
Close the browser
Click Retry
The install will occur with the browser closed.

The Java Setup - Complete dialog was displayed with the checkbox
"Restart my browser now to verify the installation"
See the attached image.

"Restart my browser" would not be displayed since it was closed before the actual install.

SUGGESTED FIX Moved needrebootIEVM and needrebootFirefox custom actions after FilesInUseDialog. testcase: http://oklahoma.east/deployment/www/tests/1.6.0_10/testcase.6665020 webrev: http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/6u10/6665020.0 I verified Tests 3 and 4 at http://j2se.east/deployment/www/webrevs/qz198522/6ux/6582863/testcase.html and they work as expected. The other tests should be covered by my existing test cases.

EVALUATION needrebootIEVM and needrebootFirefox custom actions should not be executed until after the FilesInUseDialog custom action.
