AppFabric Setup Problem


  • I think I am losing my mind. I am trying to install AseSetup_x86_6.0.exe on my Windows 2008 SP2 x86 server and I keep getting the screen saying Hot Fix KB970772 and KB970773 are required so I can't continue. However, if I go into "Programs and Features" and look for these Hot Fixes they are shown under "View Installed Updates" as:

    Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB970772)
    Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB970773)

    Am I going mad?

  • Never mind, I couldn't get past this issue so I decided to switch to Windows 7 and everything worked fine.

  • Um, I think I might have jumped the gun a little, the server had not actually been assigned a role! Doh.

    However, the error being reported was a little misleading.

  • Hi Matt,
    You seem to be saying that the problem went away once you assigned a server role. Do you mean Application Server Role? Can you pls clarify?
    Thank you
