Task Sequence failed with error code 0x80070652

Most likely you are getting this error when running an application installation task sequence where the task sequence have multiple applications and a reboot involved in between.
The SMSts.log will show;
Installation failed with error (0x80070652)

Install software failed, hr=0x80070652

Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install. (Error: 80070652; Source: Windows)

As the error msg shows, there may be an other installation in progress specially previously installed software before the reboot. Because of the SMShost service delay start, the task sequence won’t start straightaway after the reboot. Meanwhile, the software installed before the reboot will start doing something (re-configuration or perhaps installing updates). When the SMSHost service starts, it identifies other installation running so the installer fails. Hence the above error msg.

To resolve the problem, you need to identify which application is causing the problem then modify the installation.
