Error installing Report Authoring Extension – “Setup cannot continue because there is a pending restart required. Restart the computer and then try running Setup again” in Dynamics 365

While installing Report Authoring Extension got the above error.

Deleting the following Registry Key fixed the issue

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce.
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windwos\CurrentVersion\RunOnce


Hope it helps..
