Install Office Sharepoint Server 2007 w/SP2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I got an error when I was trying to configure SharePoint 2007 after installation. My situation is I have installed SharePoint 2010 on the new server (windows server 2008 r2) because my company want to upgrade to SharePoint 2010 from 2007 ( running in another server). But this upgrade was  failed. So I remove SharePoint 2010 from this new server, and tried to install SharePoint 2007 on it so that I could do upgrade in place.

    But After I installed 2007, I could not run configure, and even I could not uninstall 2007. When I ran psconfig.exe in command window, it give me error that it was trying to load Microsoft.SharePoint.dll, version 14, that is 2010 dll.

     Problem signature:
      Problem Event Name: CLR20r3
      Problem Signature 01: psconfigui.exe
      Problem Signature 02: 12.0.6413.1000
      Problem Signature 03: 4902dc1f
      Problem Signature 04: psconfigUI
      Problem Signature 05: 12.0.0.0
      Problem Signature 06: 4902dc1f
      Problem Signature 07: 15
      Problem Signature 08: 14
      Problem Signature 09: System.IO.FileNotFoundException
      OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.272.7
      Locale ID: 4105

    I found same question: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/070f9ebc-4fbb-4d54-9088-5988b520ded2/?prof=required

    but no answer for me.

    Does anyone have get same issue, or how to figure out it to let it call version 12? REally appreciate your help.

    This I am sure is the answer. However I would go further and remove *everything* that has been added since the Operating System was installed. Clearly some remnants of the old SP 2010 installation are still hanging around.

    To be 100% sure you could go the whole hog and re-format the server's hard disks and start right from the beginning by installing the OS.

    (That latter is the safer method and is the way I would go as I would then know for sure that absolutely nothing was hanging around that could cause problems later [and I could sleep better]. Most people here though would just go back to a clean OS.)

     

    P.S. To keen Moderator watchers. Yes I was thinking about moving this to a SP 2010 forum but justified leaving it here because the problems are with a MOSS 2007 installation (even though ones caused by a failed back-out from SP 2010).

  • Please note that there is a simple rule. Post any one question only once.

    Anything else causes parallel threads which cause a waste of forum members time especially in situations when one person has already answered the question in one thread and yet another person spends time composing a similar reply in the other thread.

    Here you - in addition to this new thread - also posted the same text to an existing thread (in fact to a thread closed in 2010). I have deleted both (!) copies you sent there.

    You decide whether to contribute to an existing current thread or whether to start a new thread but you don't ever do both. Usually starting a new thread is the better approach.

  • Thanks for you guys answers, and sorry for posting the question twice.

    My problems is that I am not able to uninstall 2007 because it is always trying to call dll 14 when I was trying to uninstall in Control panel. Because it wants to run psconfig.exe first, and it could not find dll 14, it has to close the uninstall program.

    Maybe I have to create a clean OS, but that is the last choice that I would like to do.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    I figured out what causes the problem. Assembly Redirects, which are still active when you uninstall SharePoint 2010 from the box. Just remove the bindings whith Windows -> RUN -> assembly - Remove everything which has Version 14.0.0.0 (of course it should have sharepoint in its name - there are around 10-14 entries))

    You can see the error if you start psconfig from the command line:

    Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=14....

    After removal - PSConfig starts as usual.

    Cheers
