I'm going to install .NET Core 2.0 on a production environment in a few days and I'm wondering if skipping the restart after the installation has any risks?
I recently installed it on a testserver without restarting and I haven't noticed any problems but I want to make sure before skipping it in production. If I must reboot then this installation goes from being an easy task to involving the server hosting company
and the client to get permissions to restart it.
What exactly happens after the restart? Is it just some registry entried that gets added?

I have installed .net core 2.0 without need to restart. Just run my 2.0 application right after the install with no problems. Windows 10, Windows 2012 Server.

If you want to use .net core 2.0 , you have to install Visual Studio 2017 Preview first. If you could install Visual Studio 2017 Preview successfully , you could not have to re-start compute ,if not, when you install the VS ,it maybe ask you re-starting
If you don’t already have the latest Visual Studio 2017 Preview version installed on your Windows system, download the latest from
Update Visual Studio and install ASP.NET Core 2.0 Preview 2

Hi "Angelina Jolie".
Thank you for your answer but that's not what I was asking. I'm not installing visual studio on the server. I just need the SDK so I can run the application in a prod enviroment and wondering if the prompted restart after the .net core 2.0 sdk installation
has any real effect. I know I can skip restart and still run the site but it would feel better if I knew what the restart actually does so I can decide if I should involve the hosting company and our customer to plan for a restart. Otherwise I can just install

Hi Dimitry! Was this was on a production environment?
Thanks for your reply!

Yes. Win 2012 Server. The same as previous version. Just 5-10 seconds installation and it is ready to use without any reboots.
UPD: I think maybe something was running at the installation moment, so installer couldn't update it and requested reboot.
