  • If you do a search on this forum it will tell you!

    What it does is it leaves a registry entry regarding a pending re-boot, which has to be cleared before the Connector will install  - poor programming from Logitech, but easy to resolve.

    To work around the pending reboot issue:
    1. Open Regedit
    2. Find the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager"
    3. Rename the "PendingFileRenameOperations" value to "PendingFileRenameOperations2"

  • As Phil has said, this has been discussed quite a bit. It's the result of a bug in the Logitech installation sotware; the key he refers to should be cleared or deleted after the successful installation of the Logitech webcam software, but isn't for some reason.

    If the only thing mentioned in that key is files related to your successfully installed Logitech web cam, you can safely delete the contents of the value, delete the entire value, or rename the value (which is actually the same thing as deleting it, as far as Windows is concerned). I would personally go with the "rename" option Phil suggests.
