Description Andrew 2013-10-07 12:42:22 UTC
I started installing update of Xamarin.Android from Xamarin Studio and switched to other tasks. The installer quite inpolitely restarted the server, closing all my opened applications and remote desktop sessions. Very rude and unexpected behavior, please fix.

The process msiexec.exe has initiated the restart of computer S2008R2 on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
Reason Code: 0x80030002
Shutdown Type: restart
Comment: The Windows Installer initiated a system restart to complete or continue the configuration of 'Xamarin.Android'.
