In this post we will discuss how to resolve the issue “Operations started by an earlier run of the Farm Configuration Wizard are still in progress” which comes when you try to run Configuration Wizard in SharePoint 2016 central administration. Recently after installing SharePoint 2016 in my laptop when I run the Farm Configuration Wizard, after running sometime it gave a request timeout error and when I tried to run again it gave the below error. First time if you are installing SharePoint 2016 Beta version, then you might face this issue The program can not start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing.
Sorry, something went wrong
Operations started by an earlier run of the Farm Configuration Wizard are still in progress. You must wait for those operations to complete before running the wizard again. You can monitor the status of these operations by looking at the “Farm Configuration Wizard” timer job on the Timer Job Status page in the Monitoring section of Central Administration.

After running Farm Configuration Wizard for sometime it gave the request time out error and then when I try to rerun the wizard, it gave the above error.
When I go to Monitoring -> click on “Check job status” under Timer Jobs I saw “Farm Configuration Wizard” timer job is still running. It shows like below:
Then I click on that job and in the Edit Timer Job, I delete it by clicking on the Delete button as shown in the fig below:
Then I start again Farm Configuration Wizard and it started correctly. Hope this will be helpful.
