Hi,

I get this weird error when I try to install SharePoint 2013 Prerequisites on Windows Server 2012. I have installed Windows Identity Foundation and .Net Framework 3.5, 4.0 from the server manager using Add server features. I noticed that the Identity extensions are available only for Windows Server 2008 R2. Can I get some links for Windows server 2012? Provide proper instructions. Thanks.

Hi,

Try installing the identity Extensions from power shell i.e command line. Type in the below lines:

C:WindowsSystem32>msiexec.exe /i "C:SharePoint2013ServerFilesprerequisiteinstallerfilesMicrosoftIdentityExtensions-64.msi" /quiet /norestart

Note that the above command within “ “ is the path where the prerequisites are downloaded.  So, this will install MIExtensions which helps the SharePoint 2013 Prerequisite installer to complete the setup. For detailed steps follow the steps mentioned in the document.

Alternatively you can go to the official download site to install the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 redistributable package. Update the windows with latest service packs before downloading the Framework.

You are getting that error because the following file is missing on your computer: msiexec.exe. It is usually found in the following location: C:Windowssystem32msiexec.exe

To resolve the issue, you will need to do the following:

  • Go to start, and then click on Run.
  • Type msiexec /regserver in the dialogue box and then press Enter.
  • After that you will need to install Microsoft Identity Extensions from command prompt using the following command: C:WindowsSystem32>msiexec.exe /i “C:SharePoint2013ServerFilesprerequisiteinstallerfilesMicrosoftIdentityExtensions-64.msi” /quiet /norestart

The error occurred because some of the prerequisites are missing.

The solution to the error is:

1) In the Control Panel Click 'Start', Click 'Run'

2) In the 'Run' window, type 'msiexec/regserver'

3) In the command prompt window, type the command C:WindowsSystem32>msiexec.exe/i"C:SharePoint2013ServerFilesprerequisiteinstallerfilesMicroosftIdentityExtensions-64.msi"/quiet/norestart

Here C:SharePoint2013ServerFilesprerequisteinstallerfiles is the path where the prerequisites for SP-2013 are downloaded.

4) The above command creates registry entries for Microsoft Identity Extensions
