  • To clarify Krishna's point: AppFabric is supported on Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2. We don't support installing on pre-released builds of the operating system, like Windows 7 RC (Release Candidate).

  • If the software update does not apply to the computer on which it will be installed, the Wusa.exe tool returns a "0x80240017 (WU_E_NOT_APPLICABLE)" error code.

    What setup was used to attempt AppFabric installation?  What is the version number (winver.exe) of the machine?

  • It wasn't very clear on the Download page which package to download for a given OS. We've updated the page with the following information. Are you using the correct Setup package? For Windows 7 you should use one of the _6.1.exe packages.

    •  
      • For 32 bit Windows Vista SP2 or Windows Server 2008 SP2 download the AseSetup_x86_6.0.exe package.
      • For 64 bit (amd64) Windows Vista SP2 or Windows Server 2008 SP2 download the AseSetup_amd64_6.0.exe package.
      • For 32 bit Windows 7 download the AseSetup_x86_6.1.exe package.
      • For 64 bit (amd64) Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 download the AseSetup_amd64_6.1.exe package.

  • Humm ... I've got the Windows 7 RC 64 bits, and the program I used was the correct one (AseSetup_amd64_6.1.exe)

    maybe the install error is because I'm using the RC, not the Final version of Windows 7 ... ¿¿??

  • There is a general purpose workaround that you can try whenever you get "0x80240017 (WU_E_NOT_APPLICABLE)".

    1. Stop the Windows Update service.  (net stop wuauserv)
    2. Rename C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution. You may need to take ownership before being able to rename it (*).
    3. Start the Windows Update service. (net start wuauserv)
    4. Install AppFabric.

    (*) Taking ownership of a folder
    1. takeown /F C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution /R /A /D Y
    2. icacls C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution /grant administrators:F /t
