The tool was unable to install Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role error while installing SharePoint 2013




In this post we will discuss about the error The tool was unable to install Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role, which usually comes when you try to install SharePoint 2013 on Server 2012.

Also you can check out my previous posts on:

- Create custom page layout in SharePoint 2013

- Create workflow using SharePoint designer 2013 in SharePoint 2013

- Advantages of SharePoint 2013 Apps

For this error you can try various solutions : (Note I never tried)

- Try to run the command: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regii -enable -i

Sometime after running this command, the error will not come.

- You can try to set the local policy by following this article.

- Try to install Asp.Net 4.5 in IIS 8, sometimes the framework resolves the issue.

If you are running Windows Server 2012 R2 download SP 2013 with SP1 and it works like a charm :)
