FIXED – SharePoint 2013 Setup Error – Appfabric is not correctly configured

July 19, 2012 by spjeff

When trying to install SharePoint Server 2013, I saw the below error.  This was caused by manually double clicking the file “WindowsServerAppFabricSetup_x64.exe” instead of allowing the SharePoint Prerequisite Installer to run this.

The resolution was to run “prerequisiteinstaller.exe” with command line parameters to directly specify the filename for each prerequisite.   Just like with SharePoint 2010, when installing offline we must tell the installer where to locate each file.   Running the various components manually doesn’t work well.   Apparently there is an install sequence or extra parameters which “prerequisiteinstaller.exe”  must perform for the prerequisites to install correctly.

Below is the correct command line to use offline.  I saved this as “prereq.cmd” on my install folder.  Hope that helps!  Smile
