  • Hello,

    I just found out the problem, it is with non-english regional. The setup program tries to match PowerShell version "2.0"/"4.0" to version "2,0"/"4,0". Notice the comma difference!

    The solution is to set the Windows number regional format in control panel to "English (United States)" and log off and back on. After this, you can continue with installing it.

  • Hi,

    I just wanted to confirm as per Markus response. The problem has been identified with the latest Directory Sync Version and it has been fixed. The next version of the Directory Sync Tool will work fine and will be available when we push this out to Prod.

    Thanks for everyone's patience, pleased to hear that most of you have been able to continue with the adoption through changing the regional settings.

    Regards,

    James.

  • Same problem here, on two seperate 2008r2 servers.

    Other has Powershell 3.0 installed, and other 2.0.

    On server with 3.0 version of powershell, all possible updates were installed from MS update.

    Older version of Dirsync ( 6567.0018 ) installed fine. 

    Also tried to update it with 6862 after that, same error occured.

    Nothing came to eventlog.

  • We are also having this problem on a Windows Server 2008 r2. (Powershell 3.0 installed)

    Can anyone please provide me with a url to Dirsync version 6567.0018 ?

    Thanks!

  • Just tried on Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2 (brand new install), all failed with the same Powershell error message. Of course Powershell 2.0 is installed and working.

    I think the current build is completely broken and Microsoft should release a fixed version or provide a workaround.

    Does anyone have a link to older build?

  • 10x a lot, I reinstalled the server before checking this post to no avail

    It is not admissible that MS does such a fail in a global solution like this

    I can confirm that this is a workaround on a Windows Server 2012 R2 U1 box. Just change the  format in control Panel an sign in new.

  • You only have to change Decimal symbol from , to .

    Regional Settings -> Format -> additional settings -> Decimal symbol

    No logout required :)
