Error when Installing MSI

Recently when trying to install a setup I made for a project on a new server having Windows Server 2008 R2 I continuously encountered an error as of below.

“The installer was interrupted before “Application” could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again.”


The server had IIS 7, .Net Framework 3.5 and 4 installed. After putting in some time onto this I found out that this is because the II6 Management Compatibility services was not installed for the Web Server role.

To fix it simply open the Server Manager and open up Web Server role and click on Add Role Services.

image Then select IIS 6 Management Compatibility node and all the child nodes below in under the Management Tools parent node and press next.

image When the installation is complete the setup will work as desired.
