App not restarting after update

Not sure if this is a bug or the way the app has been designed but why doesn't the platform restart after updating itself?

Platform Restarts

The platform automatically restarts after updating itself via its built-in updater without issue in all my testing. Please detail how you are updating as well as "system details (OS version, 32 vs 64-bit), install path, ... etc."

No Ideas

Sadly, I don't have any solid ideas as to why this might be happening. It could be antivirus taking a bit too long to scan after the installer runs. But I can't recreate it.

If you'd like to try some possibilities, you can downgrade to 25.0 and then let it update itself again.
