Software installation asks for reboot even after reboot

Sometimes you’re installing a software and you get an error stating that you need to reboot before installing.

So far, so good, but, occasionally you get that error again after the reboot. In that case, follow this procedure:

  1. Open Regedit
  2. Find the key “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession Manager”
  3. Rename the “PendingFileRenameOperations” value to “PendingFileRenameOperations2”
  4. Try again.
