Essentially, I just click on the link to install prerequisites, and I just get ‘no longer working’ message and PrerequisiteInstaller.exe crashes.
How can you resolve this?
1. make sure you are running with administrator rights
2. switch off UAC – to do this in Windows Server 2012, you can change the following registry setting:
Change the DWORD “EnableLUA” from 1 to 0
And then, try to install the SharePoint prerequisites again. This should resolve the problem.
Hope that helps!
