Installer does not restart after prerequisite reboot

I have a Microsoft Setup and Deployment project built in Visual Studio 3.5.  I have Windows Installer 3.1 and .Net Framework 3.5 selected as Prerequisites.  I have also selected "Created setup program to install prerequisite componets"  I choose the "Download prerequisties from the component vendor's web site" option and pointed it at "http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en" which is the .Net 3.5 bootstrapper program.  

When I run install on a machine that does not have .Net Framework 3.5 I am directed to this download page, I click download and the framework gets installed as expected.  When done the machine reboots and my installer does not resume installing my application.  

Am I doing this properly?  I really need my installer to resume executing after the install

I'm pretty sure it's impossible.
