SharePoint 2013 setup unable to proceed due to the following errors: This Product Requires Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5
I am trying to Install SharePoint 2013 SP1 on Windows Server 2012 R2, the SharePoint 2013 prerequisites have been installed properly and the server asks for a restart to run the SharePoint Setup.
but unfortunately, after running the setup file, I got this error:
Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s):
This product requires Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5.
I tried to run the SharePoint Prerequisites again no avail,
I also ensured that the Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5 is installed!
This issue usually occurs in case you are trying to install The Sharepoint 2013 SP1 on a machine already has .Net framework 4.6, 4.6.1, or 4.6.2 installed.
Unfortunately, The SharePoint 2013 is not able to detect the most recent .NET Framework versions, so it reports this issue incorrectly.
- First, If you are trying to install the SharePoint from DVD drive, Take a copy from the SharePoint Media to a writable location.
- Second, Based on the product you are installing, download the corresponding compressed file.
- Third, Extract the .zip file > Copy the .dll file to the Root SharePoint Setup” folder or Updates folder.
- Forth, Try now to run the Sharepoint Setup file that should now proceed without any issue.
