Server 2012 R2 preview and SQL 2014 CTP1 released today so I tried to install SharePoint 2013 on it and guess what ?! it worked


if you try the prerequisiteinstaller.exe you will see the below error

Import-Module ServerManager

Add-WindowsFeature NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45,NET-WCF-TCP-Activation45,NET-WCF-Pipe-Activation45 -Source D:\Sources\sxs

    how did you get the win fabric installed. I can’t use the prerequisiteinstaller. I get this error “Error: This tool supports Windows Server version 6.1 and version 6.2” and if i install it manually, it give me warning that i need to configure the win fabric using prerequisiteinstaller. I am trying to install SP on Win SRV 2012 R2.

    • You need to install it from the Command Prompt using theses parameters:
      WindowsServerAppFabricSetup_x64.exe /i CacheClient,CachingService,CacheAdmin /gac

      • SP says:

        Thank you. That worked for me.

      • I gave it a go but appfabric wont install. The install log:
        AppFabric installation failed because installer MSI returned with error code : 1603
        Microsoft CCR and DSS Runtime 2008 R3 : Completed Successfully
        AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server : Failed

    I have same problem. You need install Appfabric via Sharepoint prerequisiteinstaller. If you installing manual, you can see an error in installer sharepoint (appfabric is configurate incorectly and you need reinstall it) sorry for my english im from ukraine.
