Reboot Pending From a Previous installation

While you run you exchange setup some time it will fails with an error "A reboot from Previous installation is pending".

Hmmm... noooooo i have rebooted my server. Why this is repeating again and how to over come from this.

No worries there is a way, it just it might stuck at PendingFileRenameOperations key.

  • Go to the following  registry key "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\PendingFileRenameOperations" and right click and click delete.

  • Once you delete the PendingFileRenameOperations Key go to the Exchange Setup and run it again.
You will come to know the the error disappeared  now. :-) Issue is fixed.
