Read Installing and configuring Project Server 2013 - Part III before this article.


Installing Prerequisites for SharePoint 2013.

  1. Insert SharePoint Media, open Splash.hta file and click on “Install Software Prerequisites”.

  2. On Product Preparation Tool, Read the Prerequisites required to install SharePoint 2013 and click on Next.

    Note: this tool will install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5, Windows Management Framework, Application Server role, Web Server IIS role from OS Files.To install other Prerequisites, this tool will go online and it will download and install automatically.

    However we can download it manually and install it offline.

  3. On Product Preparation Tool page, select “I Accept the terms of the license Agreements” and click on next.

  4. Wait for few minutes, to complete the installation, wherever required please restart your computer and launch SharePoint Prerequisites installer.

    Note: I down have internet access my server, so Prerequisites installer is throwing an error.

  5. We can download other Prerequisites from Microsoft site and install it manually.
    (Note: To install these, just double click on downloaded file and follow it)

    To download Prerequisites go to following links.

    A. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Native Client :

    B. Microsoft Sync Framework Runtime v1.0 SP1 (x64) :

    C. Windows Identity Foundation (KB974405) :

    D. Windows Identity Extensions :

    E. Microsoft Information Protection and Control Client :

    F. Microsoft WCF Data Services 5.0 :

    G.Windows Server AppFabric : 

    Note: Download it but don’t install it by GUI since it needs configuration, Use prerequisite installer to install AppFabric

    To Install AppFabric, open command Prompt and go to Installation Media folder. (I have copied SharePoint media on C drive – folder SharePoint 2013 Media)

    Type Following command. (I have downloaded AppFabric and saved in C drive – folder SPPre)

    H. Cumulative Update Package 1 for Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server (KB2671763) :

    Note: You need to Install AppFabric first then run this update, don’t run this update if appFabric is not installed.

  6. After downloading and installing these Prerequisites, Again open Splash.hta file from SharePoint Media and click on “Install Software Prerequisites”.Make sure that, you don’t have any error.
