SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to install the Prerequisites by running the prerequisiteinstaller.exe but i'm stuck at this Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role: configuration error

I have tried the following:

  1. Do windows update (done with about 60 somthing MB)
  2. Adding the roles manually through Server Manager but it turns out that they already been added!
  3. Failed with installing KB 2771431, got this msg The update is not applicable to your computer.
  4. Tried to do the alternative method Method 2 as mentioned here and also nothing happened

I'm running this test environment on VMWare with 8 G.B of RAM and 120 G.B Hard drive capacity

Please suggest.

SharePoint 2013 is not supported on Windows Server 2012 R2. This will possibly change with the release of SP1 for SharePoint 2013 this spring.

Sure can, have added a link to Microsofts open support page regarding this –  Robert Lindgren Dec 26 '13 at 14:13

go to windows\system32 directory.

then just make duplication for the servermanager.exe and then rename to servermanagercmd.exe

i hope it will work then!

It works.. for me - Amardeep
