Our installer custom action is leaking 2 MSIHANDLEs (as can be seen by the verbose install log).

What to change

Fix the leakage and close all MSIHANDLEs properly

I'm not getting the leakage message reliably under Windows 7. In some circumstances, it's not leaking at all. In others, it's leaking one handle. I haven't seen it leak two handles under any circumstances.

The differing circumstances that my be relevant include (1) Windows version, (2) installer version, release or devbuild, (3) whether IE is running at any point during installation, (4) if relevant, what the responses to the dialogs from the CloseIe custom action are.
