Unable to install Sharepoint prerequisites on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise sp2 x64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying without success to install Sharepoint 2010 on my Windows Server 2008 Enterprise sp2 64bit sku for the past 2 days. Whenever I run the PrerequisiteInstaller.exe, it always fails while installing the "Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB976394)." I tried to install all the prerequisites manually after that. I was again stuck at Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB976394) and Windows Identity Foundation (KB974405). Everytime it says "This Update doe not apply to your system" for both of them.

    I once again tried running the PrerequisteInstaller.exe but it again failed with the following report. So as of now I have got all the prerequisites installed except the above mentioned two and I am still unable to find a way to install them despite several tries to install them manually or through PrerequisitesInstaller. Please help!!!

     

    Below is the result of the installation:

    • Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2: was already installed (no action taken)
