SharePoint 2016 IT Preview Prerequisite Installer Errors

Posted by Amit Bhatia on September 1, 2015

Hi,

I was installing the prerequisites for SP 2016 IT preview on of the test HyperV machine (Windows Server 2012 R2) with no outside internet connection.

I manually downloaded the prerequisites in another machine and manually install the pre-requisites. Some of the SharePoint farms are developed with no internet access and so I tried this scenario to gain some experience. I got into few issues while installing the prerequisites.

First Error: Prerequisites fails with MSI installed error code 1603 while installing AppFabric 1.1

Cause: The path to the PowerShell executable that is needed for the AppFabric installation is incorrect.

Solution: 

  • Go to My Computer, right-click Properties
  • On the System’ page, click Advanced System Settings on the left-side pane.
  • If you receive a UAC prompt, click on Yes to launch the System Properties dialog box
  • From the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables
  • Within the System Variables section in the lower half, select PSModulePath and click on Edit (or double-click PSModulePath‘)
  • Remove ” from the end

I re-run the SP 2016 installer and now getting a 2nd error.

Second Error: “The process of installing the prerequisite failed” along with “Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s): Windows Server Appfabric is not correctly configured. You should uninstall Windows Server Appfabric and reinstall it using the SharePoint Products Preparation Too.”

Solution: Run the SharePoint 2016 Prerequisite Installer:  prerequisiteinstaller.exe /AppFabric:prerequisiteinstallerfiles\AppFabric1.1-RTM-KB2671763-x65-ENU.exe

Note: Please make sure you have this file “AppFabric1.1-RTM-KB2671763-x65-ENU.exe” downloaded.

The machine will be restarted and the issue will be resolved. Now, you can go ahead and install SP 2016 IT Preview.
