Whilst attempting to install SharePoint 2013 onto a freshly installed (domain joined) Windows 2012 Data Center RC build I ran into errors installing the SharePoint 2013 prerequisites / binaries. From reviewing the output log whilst installing the prerequisites the error I suspected was interrupting the install was as shown below:
“error when enabling asp.net v4.0.30319”
- Hyper-V hosted on Windows 8 Release Preview
- SharePoint 2013 Preview Build: 15.0.4128.1014
- Windows Server 2012 RC Build: 8400
- Forest / Domain functional level: Windows 2008 R2
I tried various things to attempt to resolve this including adding roles and features manually as well as attempting to register ASP.NET 4 using command:
%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -i –enable
The above proved unsuccessful and then came across this forum on TechNet http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointitpropreview/thread/94b98c03-842e-4b2e-8707-8652774d73a3/
The solution was to remove the Windows Server 2012 from the domain run the prerequisites and then install the preview followed by adding the server back to the domain.
I appreciate this isn't ideal however this resolved the problem for me and I will feed this back to the product group.
