  • Done, I've install also ASP.NET 4.6 feature (I see that ps name is Web-Asp-Net45 so I try it) and the WFM install correctly.I install CU2 beacause as I wrote before refresh 3 is an update so I have to install CU2, configure it and AFTER update to refresh 3.

  • Thank you MMartin85, but please consider that:

    1. IIS is installed, but "IIS: Recommended Configuration" from WebPI (that is a requisite for WFM) does not install.
    2. WFM CU 3 is an update, it cannot be installed without WFM or WFM Refresh (that is CU2).

    By the way, I install the features grouped under "IIS: Recommended Configuration" except for "IIS: ASP.NET 4.5" because in server 2016 there is "only" ASP.NET 4.6...

    so now the Preble is a way to (one of this)

    1. tell WFM WebApi config to depend on ASP.NET 4.6 and not 4.5
    2. install ASP.NET 4.5...
    3. help

  • The installer would not finish saying IIS: Management Service would not install.  I just went in the the Server Manager and installed the Management Service manually under Web Server > Management Tools > Management Service.  The installer  then completed correctly.  I got it to work on SQL Server 2016 as well

  • Yes, it seems that all dependencies have to be installed manually

  • how did you fix it? I already have 4.6 installed and also I tried the below command without luck.

    RUN  dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:IIS-ASPNET45

  • Seems that the important feature are ok. If the problem is during the setup, do you receive an error or a missing prerequisite? Because my problem is that I always receive a "missing configuration".
