The Install process, copy the UNInstaller.exe into the Installed directory. The uninstallation process not deleting the UNInstaller.exe. But the uninstaller.exe getting deleted after the reboot. I would like to delete the Installer.exe without the system reboot.

Please advice.

The issue may be that the uninstaller is still open by some process. In this case the uninstaller registers it to be deleted after reboot and requests a reboot.

Does the issue happen with an empty sample installer ? Does it only happen on a single machine or multiple machines ?

It happens in all system. The uninstaller deletes all files except the installer.exe..

Could you try verifying that sample project does remove the uninstaller? Does waiting a few seconds before starting the uninstallation (at the confirmation question) change this behavior? Is it possible this is caused by a software such as anti-virus that is scanning the uninstaller binary and prevents it from being removed?

Also please try removing all actions from your project and see if it removes the uninstaller then? Also, does sample project remove the uninstaller once all the files you have added to your project are added to it?
