    Hi, I have a problem with Windows 7 64 bit trying to install any kind of SVN, try to install Setup-MediaPortal-svn-1.1.8.28181.exe and I get is "A reboot is required after a previous action. Reboot your system and try it again".
    I obviously have tried re-boots, shuttiongs down, googling and trying various registry edits, I have even done a complete fresh win 7 install, SP1, MP 1.2.0 rc, but STILL get the same problem.
    What flag in the registry is the SVN is checking on, so i can manualy adjust this flag and continue with my life. Does anybody know what registry key this would be in windows 7 64 bit please?

    Many kind regards.

    I had the same issue too. I resolved it by deleting a certain file in one of the MP folders that locked the installation process. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the file or even which directory it was and I'm traveling so I can't even check my recycle bin for you to see which one it was. Scan through the MP, TV, Users, and SQL folders and you'll likely see it like I did.

    Hi doug, how did you go about discovering which file, or files, was locked and prevented you from installing the SVN?

    Cheers.

    Hello mate,

    Check out the following reg key:

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\PendingFileRenameOperations

    Is there anything listed?

    Re: "A reboot is required after a previous action. Reboot your system and try it agai

    How about?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\AutoUpdate\RebootRequired

    or:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\UpdateExeVolatile\flags

    Or.....

    Do a reg search for: PendingFileRenameOperations and make sure nothing is defined (this key might be in several places)

    Or......

    Download this file from MS: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=40751

    Place it on c:\

    Then save the following as a vbs file and run it:

    Set UpdateSession = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.Session")
    Set UpdateServiceManager = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager")
    Set UpdateService = UpdateServiceManager.AddScanPackageService("Offline Sync Service", "c:\wsusscan.cab")
    Set UpdateSearcher = UpdateSession.CreateUpdateSearcher()

    WScript.Echo "Searching for updates..." & vbCRLF

    UpdateSearcher.ServerSelection = 3 ' ssOthers

    UpdateSearcher.ServiceID = UpdateService.ServiceID

    Set SearchResult = UpdateSearcher.Search("RebootRequired=")

    Set Updates = SearchResult.Updates

    If searchResult.Updates.Count = 0 Then
    WScript.Echo "There are no applicable updates."
    WScript.Quit
    End If

    WScript.Echo "List of applicable items on the machine when using wssuscan.cab:" & vbCRLF

    For I = 0 to searchResult.Updates.Count-1
    Set update = searchResult.Updates.Item(I)
    WScript.Echo I + 1 & "> " & update.Title
    Next

    WScript.Quit

    Re: "A reboot is required after a previous action. Reboot your system and try it agai

    Well, it wasn't the SVN, it was the Beta. It was a late night when I finally fixed it so my recollection could be fuzzy, but if I recall correctly, the file was in the MySQL installation folder. I was installing over top of an existing MySQL installation and the install went awry an kept asking me to reboot. Try deleting the entire MySQL program folder and user data folder and try the install again.

    EDIT: oh...now I see you've done a fresh Win7 install. I guess my suggestion might not be relevant.
