I've installed a fresh copy of Windows Server 2008 R2 into a virtual machine, using VirtualBox.
Now I'm trying to install the prerequisites for Sharepoint, using the "Microsoft Sharepoint Products and Technologies 2010 Preparation Tool".
Every time I run this tool, after some processing, I keep getting the following error:
The tool was unable to install Microsoft "Geneva" Framework Runtime
- Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role: configured successfully
- Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client: installed successfully
- Microsoft "Geneva" Framework Runtime: installation error
- Microsoft Sync Framework Runtime v1.0 (x64): Installation skipped
- Microsoft Chart Controls for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5: Installation skipped
- Microsoft Filter Pack 2.0: Installation skipped
- Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services ADOMD.NET: Installation skipped
I've tried Googling the error but found only one link, which didn't resolve my issue.
I located the log file (using: 'cd %temp%' then 'dir /od *.log'), and noticed that it contains the following text:
2011-07-11 01:53:43 - Beginning download of Microsoft "Geneva" Framework Runtime 2011-07-11 01:53:43 - http://download.microsoft.com/download/F/3/D/F3D66A7E-C974-4A60-B7A5-382A61EB7BC6/MicrosoftGenevaFramework.amd64.msi 2011-07-11 01:53:44 - Download of "Microsoft "Geneva" Framework Runtime" completed successfully 2011-07-11 01:53:44 - Installing Microsoft "Geneva" Framework Runtime 2011-07-11 01:53:44 - "C:\Windows\system32\msiexec.exe" /i "C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\IDF850F.tmp.msi" /quiet /norestart 2011-07-11 01:53:44 - Install process returned (0X654=1620) 2011-07-11 01:53:44 - [In HRESULT format] (0X80070654=-2147023276) 2011-07-11 01:53:44 - Last return code (0X654=1620) 2011-07-11 01:53:44 - Error: The tool was unable to install Microsoft "Geneva" Framework Runtime. 2011-07-11 01:53:44 - Last return code (0X654=1620)
Then I went to run the file "C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\IDF850F.tmp.msi" manually, and got a dialog saying:
This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package.
Then I noticed that when I put the Geneva download URL into my browser, I just get a 404.
So I guess Microsoft have taken the file off their servers.
Is there any way I can fix this, or get Geneva from somewhere else, or install Sharepoint 2010 without installing Geneva? And isn't anyone else having the same issue?
