When installing a program I kept getting the prompt below that an update is pending. Even after a restart, this would display, therefore I changed these registry keys to clear up the issue.
Microsoft Server setup cannot continue because a restart from a previous installation or update is pending.
The Fix for an update is pending
The following Registry keys control this error message. If you have rebooted and are still experiencing this issue, clear out these keys and relaunch your installer.
The Setup MSI displays an error message if one of the following conditions is true:
- The value of the UpdateExeVolatile registry key is anything other than 0.
- The PendingFileRenameOperations registry key has any value.
