Install SharePoint Foundation on Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I cannot install SPF 2010 on my system with the following specs:

    Windows 8 Enterprise x64 - 2Duo CPU 2 GHz - 4GB RAM

    When I try to run the setup application, it does not do anything. It only opens a file called Splash.hta on Visual Studio. Anyone can help?

  • Are you following the instructions for installing on Windows 7 X64?  Have you edited the config.xml file and manually installed the prereqs?  Check my blog post on the install steps for windows 7 x64.  YOu need to extract the files and run from a subdirectory.  You can't run the install from the DVD.

  • You also get this behavior on Windows 2012 (R2) Server.

    Reason is a missing application association for .hta files on those platforms. So all you must do is to associate .hta with mshta.exe, normally found under "c:\windows\system32".

    If you start SharePoint-foundation-2013.exe (or SharePointFoundation.exe for 2010) the setup first extracts the files (normally to C:\Program Files (x86)\MSECache\SharePoint2010) and start the UI by opening splash.hta in this directory. So start the setup and wait until it shows the error above. Select "Microsoft HTML Application host" in the "open with" Dialog (and not Visual Studio)
