Hi guys,

I know everybody faced this problem at some point— when I try to set up alatestapplication then Windows warns to reboot first or after installation. Also sometimes it tells me to close all of its applications. Why is this happening? Is it really natural?

Need some advice.

Thanks.

Restarting the computer every after installation.

It is a customary that if some programs are installed and they require updating in the environment variables and process at start up then the machine has to be restarted to get the change into effect.

Once such a program is installed, a record information is kept which indicates the restart requirement for the computer before any fresh installation otherwise some illegal operations may get performed.

As such whenever you again try to install something, the record is checked for any pending reboot of the machine. If found, the installation is stopped any requires restart. Once restarted you can install the new software as the record is now cleared.
