I am trying to install sharepoint server 2016 on a 64-bit Windows 10 server OS but the installation fails during prerequisite installation.

The error is due to the following line: Cumulative Update Package 7 for Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server (KB3092423): installation error

I tried separate install of CU7 update for AppFabric 11 and it failed too. The log file of the separate install:

[04/14/18 14:55:53] Performing install.

[04/14/18 14:55:53] At least one of the product packages has been detected.

[04/14/18 14:55:53] preReqUpdateDisplayName is :




[04/14/18 14:55:58] Operation succeeded.

[04/14/18 14:55:58] Package AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server is installed.

[04/14/18 14:55:58] Package code is {96E70525-4CD1-4920-9C0B-91055C79A962}.

[04/14/18 14:55:58] Executing preinstall custom actions. 2 actions to execute.

[04/14/18 14:55:58] Operation failed. Error code is 6.

[04/14/18 14:55:58] Deleting file C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\E-Business Servers Updates\Updates\Uninstall3092423\EBizTemp.txt ...

[04/14/18 14:55:58] Operation succeeded.

[04/14/18 14:55:58] The custom action returned 6.

[04/14/18 14:55:58] One of the custom actions failed. The installation cannot continue. See log for details.

I think the error code 6 is the windows system error code "The Handle is invalid" but I'm not sure how to resolve it. I tried to uninstall and install the AppFabric for Windows Server completely but the issue persists. Could you please provide some solution for this issue?

SharePoint 2016 isn't supported on Windows 10. You need to use a supported version of Windows Server.
