SharePoint Prerequisite Installation Can’t Install Web Server Role

If you are trying to install the prerequisite for SharePoint 2013 or 2016 and you come across an error message saying it can’t install the web server role. Most likely the issue is that you haven’t installed .NET Framework 3.5 feature on the server.

Go to Server Manager and select Add roles and features, click next till you see a list of features and then select .NET Framework 3.5 Features and continue. After you have done this, install the prerequisite again.


Inno Setup: Check Windows Registry for MS .NET Framework Version

I just recently installed Inno Setup on my computer, I use to use it to package my software setup together for distribution. Inno Setup is so well designed, it has a Wizard to prepare your setup and if you want to add something tricky to your setup. You can also write code scripts to do certain things and best of all it’s free!

The language that is used for scripting is Pascal, this was one of the first language you learn when learning how to program.
