Problem Setting Up SharePoint 2010 beta on Windows 7 Ultimate N 64-bit

    Question

  • Reference doc: 
       http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869(office.14).aspx

    Resources:
       Windows 7 Ultimate N  64-bit Operating system on an Intel core 2 quad with 4GB mem, 
       installing Sharepoint 2010 Foundation beta

    Problem:
       I've done each step per the document, with each step finishing successfully, Until
         Step 3: Install SharePoint 2010
           1.open a Command Prompt window, and type:  c:\SharePointFiles\Setup.exe

      At which time I get the popup window:

           "Setup Errors:
            Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s):
            This product requires Windows Vista (x64) SP1 or above Business, Enterprise or
            Ultimate, or Windows 7 (x64) Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate.
            Correct the issue(s) listed above and re-run setup."

      Note that I did edit yhe config.xml to include <Setting Id="AllowWindowsClientInstall" Value="True"/>
      and I am NOT getting the error alluded to:
            "Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s):
             This product requires Windows Server 2008 (x64)
             Correct the issue(s) listed above and re-run setup."
        which leads me to think the config.xml file is ok, and the problem is somewhere else.


    Differences in my system:
    1) I have a multi boot, and the partition I'm using for Win 7 Sharepoint 2010 is  V:
    2) My data directories are on a data partition  Q:

    Do I need my boot partn to be C: ?
    Do I need my working data dir (Q:) to be on the same partition as my boot (V:) ?
    I have rebooted in between some of the steps...


    Thanks in advance for any help folks can provide

  • This is a bug in Beta. N/KN editions are blocked. It will be fixed at RTM.

  • The exclusion of N/KN is just a bug, something that was overlooked and will be corrected for RTM. However you can't work around it since it's in the executable installer file. Your options are to pick one of the other OS SKU's which don't get hit by this bug.

    You can choose from one of these OS's, any SKU which includes IIS, but not the N/KN variants.

    Windows Vista SP1
    Windows 7
    Windows Server 2008
    Windows Server 2008 R2

  • I am having the same problem...isn't there any way that we can change the "Product Type = 0x1c" value in the registry to the normal windows ultimate value. I don't know where the setup is getting this value but if it can be changed then we will not have any problem as the OS is already Windows 7 ULTIMATE.

    OS check result: 0x00001150
    Catalyst OS requirement check failed
    Catalyst verified this OS is Not Windows Business, Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate Edition. Product Type = 0x1c
    Checking if CLSID_DOMDocument60 can be created.
    Checking the version of MSXML6.
    MSXML version check passed. Minimum required version is [6.10.1129], installed Version is [6.30.7600.16385].

  • There's no point in asking about a Win 7 Ultimate installation in a thread that is about Win 7 Ultimate N.

    Either start a new thread or add to a thread that is about installation in the normal Win 7 Ultimate.

    As I understand, there will be no fix for the beta release. You must wait for the RTM Release of SharePoint 2010.

  • What a terrible decision; how hard could it be to patch the installer to support these operating systems?

    Perhaps not really hard, but however much time it would be, I would prefer the team spend that time improving the quality of the final product. It's very rare that we would create patches for beta releases because of this.

    Hi,

    This should be fixed. Can you please provide a screenshot of the error you see on installation and also provide the files\setup\config.xml file that you are using? The install guide for SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7 has been updated for RTM. I'll get the note within it about N and KN removed as soon as I can verify it works.

    I don't have easy access to N so would appreciate if someone could tell me they got it installed okay.

    You can now download SharePoint Foundation 2010 RTM.

    Regards,
    Paul

  • I was able to hack around it (for beta) using this guide:

    http://www.eggheadcafe.com/sample-code/Windows7/89c7b0a1-e194-407b-8cba-cb3763976524/setup-errors-when-you-try.aspx

    Perhaps it's still applicable.

    Charlie, did this work for you on Windows 7 N? N is the EU version that doesn't include Windows Media Player.

    It's not a hack. That article points to the MSDN install guide I referenced above.

  • Ah, sorry, didn't recall the details of the article since it was a few days ago.

    I was having issues installing SharePoint Foundation 2010 Beta on Windows Vista Enterprise x64, not W7N.

    Haven't tried with RTM yet, but that's on my to-do list for tonight.

     

    Edit:   Downloaded RTM, uninstalled beta version, and RTM had the same error.  Will not install on Windows Vista Enterprise x64 SP2

  • I installed Windows 7 Enterprise N and couldn't get the Beta to install (same error as many posts here).  I downloaded the file you specified, extracted it, and am now running the installation...

    Makes me very happy :)
