I am trying to do offline installation of Windows AppFabric on Windows Server 2012 using prerequisites installer as below but getting error.
Error: Custom file location is not accessible
I have confirmed that the file exists at the above location and that I am local administrator of that machine.
Here's some background on what I am doing. This machine doesn't have internet access as I tried to run prerequisites installer but it won't install.
So I downloaded all softwares required one by one and placed them in following location:
After that I installed them by double clicking on the exes. Then I tried to install SharePoint and got error about AppFabric not installed or not properly not configured (something to that effect). Upon searching I came to know that you shouldn't install those softwares like that and instead should have used prerequisites installer to install them one by one as it also configures them.
Anyway I uninstalled AppFabric (which is another story as I had to try like 3, 4 times) and now I am trying to install it using prerequisites installer command line option but getting error.
