IT Problem

On an exchange 2010 install I was in the early stages of the install so I had to go through the prerequisites and install .Net Framework 3.5.1 and IIS. So as usual I went to features and put a tick in the .Net Framework 3.5.1 box and away it went. To my surprise I received the error below.

.NET Framework 3.5.1

WCF Activation

HTTP Activation

Windows Process Activation Service

Configuration APIs

The following role services were not installed:

As you can see it did not go well. So I then tried just to install .Net Framework 3.5.1 on its own, exact same error. This was not going good considering it was and brand new install of server 2008r2.

IT Solution

Reading the error I noticed the same feature kept coming up as a failure, the
Windows Process Activation Service. So off I went into features and sure enough it was installed.

Windows Process Activation Service error

Windows Process Activation Service error

To fix this issue you need to remove the Windows Process Activation Service and the reboot. Once the server has rebooted you can then select .Net Framework 3.5.1 and it will install all of its components successfully.

    After hours of narrowing down the culprit, you put the nail into this issue for me. I was trying to add features to the Application Server role (for Sharepoint 2010), and the 3.5.1 Framework had been installed previously without Non-HTTP WCF. Following your instructions, I removed and then re-added (completely, this time) the Framework along with PAS, successfully. Many thanks!
