If you are facing an issue with the installation of .NET 4.8 where the installation fails to complete and throws an error message that says, “Another installation is in progress. Wait a moment and click on Retry.” This article can help you resolve the issue.
This error message is commonly caused by another software installer running in the background blocking the installation of .NET 4.8. To resolve this issue, follow the steps outlined below:
Step 1: Cancel the Other Installation
Before proceeding with the installation of .NET 4.8, check if another software installation is running in the background. If so, cancel the application installation dependent on the .NET installation and then proceed with the .NET installation.
Step 2: Restart the .NET Installation
After canceling the other installation, restart the .NET installation. If the installation fails again with the same error message, click on the “Retry” button to continue the installation.
Step 3: Wait for a Few Minutes
If the installation still does not complete and shows the same error message, wait a few minutes and try again. The .NET installation progress bar is deceptive. It does not incrementally update as you might expect. The progress bar updates after the installation achieves 70 percent of progress, so you may be tempted to intervene prematurely.
Step 4: Restart the Machine
If the above steps do not resolve the issue, the last resort is restarting the machine. Restarting the machine will clear any installation processes that are stuck or blocked and allow you to complete the .NET installation successfully.
The installation of .NET 4.8 may fail with the error message “Another installation is in progress. Wait a moment and click on Retry” due to another software installer running in the background. To resolve this issue, cancel the other installation, restart the .NET installation, wait a few minutes, or restart the machine if necessary. By following these steps, you can complete the installation of .NET 4.8 successfully.
