FEP 2010 – Prerequisites verification fails on pending restart


Today I was installing FEP 2010 at a customer. At the prerequisites verification page I got an error on a pending restart. Well… That’s not unlikely so I restarted the server, but I got the same result.


To work around this problem you have to modify the registry.

Open PendingFileRenameOperations key from “HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession Manager”. Delete (or copy its content to notepad) and save the key. Restart FEP 2010 Setup (or re-run the prerequisite checker) and then everything should be just fine. At least it for me J

Thank to Kenny Buntinx, for helping me out on this issue.
