When does Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable lead to PC reboot

In some machines installing Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable requires PC reboot. However, if we
1) Install Redistributable
2) Reboot
3) Remove Redistributable
4) Try to install it again
It doesn't require a reboot on the second attempt of installation. In addition, in some cases it doesn't require reboot even on the first attempt to install it. It looks that it depends not on Redistributable itself but on some KB update or something like that.
It's pretty important for me to reproduce the "reboot required" environment for my program's installer debugging purposes. Maybe someone knows how it works and how I can reproduce "reboot required" situations for Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable.

I'd try asking for help in dedicated MSDN C++ forums here.
