TFS 2012 Fails to Install on Windows Server 2012 due to .Net Version

    Question

  • When I attempt to install the latest TFS 2012 on Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate Essentials I get this message via the message box before I can choose any options:

    Error : The .Net Framework installed on this machine does not meet the minimum required version.
    The log reports this:

    [1F9C:25C0][2012-11-02T16:12:46]: Burn v3.6.3014.0, Windows v6.2 (Build 8400: Service Pack 0), p

    [1F9C:25C0][2012-11-02T16:12:46]: Condition '(VersionNT = v6.2) AND (netfxfullredist_43_DetectKey < v4.5.50709)' evaluates to true. [1F9C:25C0][2012-11-02T16:12:46]: [Error] The .Net Framework installed on this machine does not meet the minimum required version.

    When I install .Net 4/4.5 the .net installation reports that the OS has it already as a part of its footprint.

    What am I missing?

  • Hi William,

    TFS 2012 is not supported on Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate, because the release candidate OS uses a different build of the .NET 4.5. You will need to install the RTM version of Windows Server 2012 and then you can install TFS 2012.

    Thanks,

    Roy
