We all have installed SSMS many times if we work on an SQL server. While I was installing SSMS on my local machine, I encountered the below error.
I have restarted my PC many times (at least 3 times or more) but I always get the same result.
Do you also face this error while installing SSMS? Ahhhh!! Please don't worry!!
We are here one more time to resolve your issue.

Do you still get the error after restart?


A pending restart is blocking the setup from completing. Please restart the computer and run the setup again.

I have seen lots of blogs but don't know what they are saying and why they are recommending such long resolutions


I would suggest you to please disable fast boot from your system and then restart your system.
Re-run the setup, hope this fixes your issue.
