Error in installing Application Tier in TFS 11 on windows server 8

While i am trying to install TFS 11 beta version on windows 8 server using IIS 8, this error comes up and i didn’t find a solution on the internet for it, TFXXXXXX: One or more required features of IIS have not been configured as a role service in Internet Information Services (IIS). The log contains a list of missing features.

Log file contain one other information (Feature NetFxEnvironment is not registered.) I tried to reinstall the IIS 8 and check all features in this new windows 8
Finally i found the solution, follow below steps:

  • Make sure you have administrative privileges on the machine
  • Using command line add this command
    CMD /C START /w PKGMGR.EXE /l:log.etw /iu:IIS-WebServerRole;IIS-WebServer;IIS-CommonHttpFeatures;IIS-StaticContent;IIS-DefaultDocument;IIS-DirectoryBrowsing;IIS-HttpErrors;IIS-HttpRedirect;IIS-ApplicationDevelopment;IIS-ASP;IIS-CGI;IIS-ISAPIExtensions;IIS-ISAPIFilter;IIS-ServerSideIncludes;IIS-HealthAndDiagnostics;IIS-HttpLogging;IIS-LoggingLibraries;IIS-RequestMonitor;IIS-HttpTracing;IIS-CustomLogging;IIS-ODBCLogging;IIS-Security;IIS-BasicAuthentication;IIS-WindowsAuthentication;IIS-DigestAuthentication;IIS-ClientCertificateMappingAuthentication;IIS-IISCertificateMappingAuthentication;IIS-URLAuthorization;IIS-RequestFiltering;IIS-IPSecurity;IIS-Performance;IIS-HttpCompressionStatic;IIS-HttpCompressionDynamic;IIS-WebServerManagementTools;IIS-ManagementScriptingTools;WAS-WindowsActivationService;WAS-ProcessModel;IIS-WebDAV;IIS-ASPNET;IIS-NetFxExtensibility;WAS-NetFxEnvironment;WAS-ConfigurationAPI;IIS-ManagementService;NetFx3
  • Make sure all variables in same line when pate the command.
  • Rerun the readiness checks.

  1. I have tried to install TFS for the first time got another error:

    TF255414: No information could be retrieved for Web sites in Internet Information Services (IIS). The attempt failed with the following message: Microsoft.Web.Administration assembly cannot be loaded.. If you installed IIS while the administration console for Team Foundation was running, you might need to close the wizard and the wizard launcher and restart the administration console to resolve this issue. For more information, see the configuration log.

    However, i am not sure what your command line for but it works. Maybe you can explain something of that.

    So far, thanks for the command line.
