I've been programming since I was 15 and freelancing on enterprise projects for 7 years, doing most of my development on C#/.NET and Javascript.

Lately I've focussed on developing rich, fast, responsive web apps, using client-side frameworks (such as Knockout and jQuery Validation) and have been experimenting with NodeJS.

You'll notice I often ask and answer my own questions. To my surprise, many of those questions actually get visited and up-voted, proving that a lot of the stuff we think is unique to our particular project can actually be very useful to other people.

So go StackOverflow!

Finally fixed it! Turns out I'd installed the SDK rather than Geneva itself. Finally tracked down the MicrosoftGenevaFramework.x64.msi file on this blog: blog.furuknap.net/installing-sharepoint-2010-beta-1. Here's the link to download the correct MSI file: download.microsoft.com/download/8/6/6/….

When I check the setup log file, it has the following line: 'Minimum Geneva Framework version 1.0.21023.5 is not installed.'. Yet if I go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, it shows Geneva in the list, with that exact version installed!

Thanks for the link you sent. I found out that I can run the PrerequisiteInstaller with a '/IDFX:' switch, which allows me to substitute my own 'Geneva' installer for the default download. So I did that, and the PrerequisiteInstaller ran to the end with no errors. Unfortunately, this doesn't solve the problem, as when I run the main installer, it still complains that Geneva isn't installed.

I can try doing that, but I doubt it will work, because right now when I run the main installer, it immediately complains about Geneva not being installed, even though I installed it. If it won't work now, with Geneva, I doubt it will work after I install the other dependencies. It'll probably just keep asking for Geneva.

Nope, no luck. Ran the installer to the end and it said it was successful. But when I ran the prerequisites installer again, I just got the same old message, and the log is also exactly the same. It ignores the fact that I've installed Geneva manually, and just keeps trying to download it from the broken URL.

OK, I found a download link here: connect.microsoft.com/site642/Downloads/…. I'm going to try running it and see what happens.

Yup you're right, it's dead. So how are people installing Sharepoint? Is there anywhere else I can get the file? I've been Googling for it, but haven't found any download links for about 20 pages.
