I am new to Magento & learning it. I have installed Magento 2.1.7 in different folder twice both are showing different errors for the same configuration in the same system.

First, I installed Magento in my system with folder name "magento2.1" & then changed the php.ini file memory_limit=1024M.

Secondly, I installed Magento with the name "magento_test" than when I am running both Magento installations & installing an extension named Instant search.

In magento 2.1 it is showing error like

Magento 2.1 error

In magento_test it is showing the below error

Magento_test error

Can anyone tell me why this is happening? My system has the Php 7.0.2 & I am using xampp in windows,& I was also getting the error of cron job in both the cases first for that I have skipped the cronjob checking By making.

$setupCheck = ['success'=>1];
$updaterCheck = ['success'=>1];

So the cron job is not there but I am facing the above-given errors can anyone tell me what to do?

Thank you @Emipro Technologies Pvt Ltd. your suggestion worked. I am writing this answer in an appropriate manner for helping them who are using Windows system & trying to use it in localhost.

Simply go into your Magento directory & open command prompt there & type these three commands without doing any changes into your installation of Magento for installing the extension

php bin/magento cron:run
php update/cron.php
php bin/magento setup:cron:run

After this again reload your admin panel & try to install the extension into your system you will not get the error of the above listed.
