I'm tyring to configure AppFabric on Windows svr 2012 r2. I installed it my machine but when I try to run sharepoint 2013 prerequisites installer, it returns me a error.
AppFabric comes with the SharePoint prerequisites installer. Did you try to install it manually before running this setup? Try to uninstall it and re-run the prereqs installer.
Note: Appfabric installation and configuration has to be done by the prerequisite installer ONLY and not in a stand-alone manner.
You can implement any one of the two solutions listed below:
Solution 1: Append the following path to PSModulePath entry in the environment variables - %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0
◦Go to My Computer, right-click Properties
◦On the System' page, click Advanced System Settings on the left-side pane.
◦If you receive a UAC prompt, click on Yes to launch the System Properties dialog box
◦From the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables
◦Within the System Variables section in the lower half, select PSModulePath and click on Edit (or double-click PSModulePath')
◦Append the following path to PSModulePath entry in the environment variables
◦Ensure that the PSModulePath entry looks like this:
C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\;c:\Program Files\AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server\PowershellModules
◦There are chances that other applications might be referencing the same variable and may fail if it is deleted. This is what we can do if solution 1 does not help.
◦Remove the PSModulePath entry from the 'Environment Variables' and re-run the installer. Once it completes successfully, ensure that the PSModulePath entry looks the same as mentioned in solution 1.
