Installation fails with Error 0x80048bc7

Installation fails with Error 0x80048bc7

Problem:

Installing Visual COBOL 2.3 Update 2 for Visual Studio 2012 fails with Error 0x80048bc7 on Windows 10, and the installation log also reports Error 0x80070002 in the following entries:

Resolution:

The McAfee anti-virus software for some reason causes the Error 0x80070002, so disabling this software temporarily before installing Visual COBOL resolves that error.

As for the Error 0x80048bc7, it means "Restart is required before installation can continue." See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee225238.aspx

On the machine where this problem occurred, there were some Windows 10 updates in pending and requiring a machine reboot. Restarting the machine does not initiate the update installation in Windows 10. The restart has to be done from Windows Update.

After installing Windows updates, restarting the machine, and disabling the McAfee anti-virus temporarily, it was possible to install Visual COBOL successfully.
