  • Hi everyone, the WCF Data Services 5.6.0 RTM Tools Installer has now been restored to the Microsoft Download Center.  The SharePoint prerequisite installer should no longer fail to download these bits.  Note that the download landing page hasn't been republished so this download won't be searchable within the Microsoft Download Center.  You'll need to use the direct link to the bits or the FWLink that redirects to the bits.

    Thanks again for reporting this issue to us and for your patience while we restored this download.

  • Hi Ariwibawa,

    Try to open command windows as administrator and use prerequisiteinstaller.exe command to install the prerequisite and check if the issue exits.

  • I'm not sure you understand my question. I was looking for wcfdataservice56.exe installation, all of google link to those files were going into 404 (page not found).

    Anyway here's the screen when I run that prerequisiteinstaller.exe from administrator command prompt.

    Here's another screen showing you what happened when I clicked on the link from google

    Another screen where I tried to download those WCF file from link in offline installer.

  • Hi Ariwibawa,

    I also cannot download the WCF file from the official download link.

    I would suggest to raise a Microsoft Support ticket and work with them, they might be able to help you.

  • Hi Grace,

    got the same issue here.
    Microsoft Support rejected our support request and redirected us to TechNet. Could you please provide an alternative link?

  • Same problem here. Only found WCF 5.0 which is NOT sufficient to install SharePoint 2019!
