PSConfig fails System.InvalidOperationException, “Cannot start service SPAdminv4 on computer ‘.'” after CU install

Posted by Amit Bhatia on October 3, 2012

If you’ve experienced this error (System.InvalidOperationException, “Cannot start service SPAdminv4 on computer ‘.’) after installing SharePoint 2010 and failing consistently at the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard, then this is likely to help:

(1) Browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN

(2) In this directory Create a file called “WSSADMIN.EXE.CONFIG”

(3) Populate it with the following:

<configuration>
<runtime>
<generatePublisherEvidence enabled=”false”/>
</runtime>
</configuration>

This disables checking for CAS publisher policy. MSDN article, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb629393.aspx
