SharePoint 2013 !!
It’s finally available for a public review/beta.
I have a new VM with Windows Server 2008 R2 – with all updates applied.
BUT – get an error – almost immediately when attempting to install pre-requisites.
There was an error during installation.
This tool does not support the current operating system.
It turns out that you have to ‘manually’ choose to install SERVICE PACK 1 – it’s not done as part of the updates. (FAIL !?)
Download from here :
The file you’ll need is the “windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe” file – at the bottom of the list…
Once you’ve installed that – and re-booted – you’ll be able to proceed with the SP2013 install.
