I encountered this problem when trying to install sharepoint server 2013 trial edition.

Trial editions and licensed editions of Sharepoint, Project Server, and office web apps products may not be installed on the same server

A little background on what I have already done prior to this error

  1. I installed exchange server and set up the active directory domain
  2. I am using Windows server 2012 datacenter
  3. I have installed sql server 2014

It is not recommended to install the SharePoint Exchange and Domain on the same Server. It will cause alot of conflict.

I highly recommend use the Virtual solution, create 2 VMs(one for SharePoint and One for Exchange).

Also check this one, may help you. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/exchange/en-US/75a00f2f-89bd-4922-9af2-575dc2f0bd1a/can-be-install-exchange-server-2010-and-sharepoint-2010-on-the-same-server-without-any-conflict?forum=exchange2010

  • Yepp, I have had several VM:s end up non-functioning after installing exchange on the same server (for integration tests) Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 19:50

I manually removed the exchange server but it still didnt work but I later found this in this blog http://www.mice-ts.com/sharepoint-2010-licensing-issue/ and it worked perfectly

1. Run RegEdit
2. Browse to HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Office/15.0/Registration
3. Delete LicenseType
4. Restart your install.
