Error:During launch of CoreConfig! ReturnCode:1

Jan 12, 2010 at 5:29 AM


I tried to install on 3 individual Core servers, and got an error on all three. It may be something I did wrong during the extract/install. Here's the error:

Error:During launch of CoreConfig! ReturnCode:1 Please copy source to local drive and try again.

Here's what I did to set it up:

I downloaded the cab install

I copied the cab to the C: drive of the core server, then ran 'expand -f:* .' to extract it into the current directory. (I could see the extracted files afterwards)

I then ran start_coreconfig.wsf

It went through the process of installing the netfx-servercore feature, then it said Powershell is already installed. But then it throws the error.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi jaykay81

Can you post the directory path here for me to review, as we found a bug if you have a <space> in the directory path. Jaykay can you do us a favour and reboot your host and running the application again to see if this relates to powershell installation.

will wait for your reply

I found the solution in the code.

In the Start_CoreConfig.wsf file - change the following line:

iRetCode = WshShell.Run ("C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe " & GlobalFolderPath & "\" & "CoreConfig.ps1", 1, True)


iRetCode = WshShell.Run ("C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe ""& '" & GlobalFolderPath & "\" & "CoreConfig.ps1'""", 1, True)

The file will then run from a directory with Spaces...
