How to deploy MAP toolkit on Windows 8 x64 bit OS. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Are you fed up of Error 0x800F0906 while installing MAP toolkit on your PC having Windows 8 x64 bit:

    Below are the steps I carried out which allowed me to install it successfully:

    Start the Local Group Policy Editor or Group Policy Management Console.

    Expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, and then select System.

    Open the Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair Group Policy setting, and then select Enabled.

    If you want to specify an alternative source file, in the Alternate source file path box, specify a fully qualified path of a shared folder that contains the contents of the \sources\sxs folder from the installation media. Or, specify a WIM file. To specify a WIM file as an alternative source file location, add the prefix WIM: to the path, and then add the index of the image that you want to use in the WIM file as a suffix. The following are examples of values that you can specify: 
    1. Path of a shared folder: \\server_name\share\Win8sxs
    2. Path of a WIM file, in which 3 represents the index of the image in which the feature files are found: WIM: \\server_name\share\install.wim:3

    If it is applicable to do this, select the Contact Windows Update directly to download repair content instead of Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) check box.

    Tap or click OK.

    At an elevated command prompt, type the following command and then press Enter to apply the policy immediately:

    gpupdate /force

    Or, you can use the Windows installation media as the file source when you enable the .NET Framework 3.5 feature. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Insert the Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 installation media.
    2. At an elevated command prompt, run the following command:
      Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:<var><drive></var>:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess
      Note In this command, <var><drive></var>  is a placeholder for the drive letter for the DVD drive or for the Windows 8 installation media. For example, you run the following command:
      Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

    Here is the output:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]
    (c) 2012 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\Windows\system32>Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:I:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.2.9200.16384

    Image Version: 6.2.9200.16384
