Did you install this hotfix? Is your machine sysprepped btw? Because I've seen similar errors related to that. In addition, does the account you're logged on with has the right permissions? – Thomas Vochten Dec 6 '12 at 8:50

I would install the hotfix. Did you have a look at and There are specific sections on Windows 7 and a standalone install. – Thomas Vochten Dec 6 '12 at 9:42

the problem was with my SharePoint source with SP2 in it. uninstalling and installing from another SP1 source resolved my problem

also uninstalling Office 2013 resolved 3 of my problems

  • creating new web application
  • breakpoints does not hit in debugging mode
  • config wizard does not complete successfully

SharePoint 2010 Configuration Wizard error step 2 of 10 on Windows 7
