I was trying to install vCenter Server 5.1 (VMware-VIMSetup-all-5.1.0-1065152.iso) on a computer running Windows Server 2012. I got an Internal error 28173 and I remember I used the Simple Install component.
All your efforts to help me on this will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Error – Internal Error 28173, -2146498298
Internal error 28173 when installing vCenter Server 5.1.0
This problem is caused because one of the requirements of vCenter Server installed in your system is missing: .NET Framework 3.5
To resolve the problem please follow the steps:-
1 > Go to Server Manager
2 > Select the Add roles and features wizard and install .NET Framework 3.5 features.
3 > After completion start the installation of vCenter Server again.
