Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard & Error 87

5 posts in this topic

Although this version of Windows Server is not on the list of tested platforms, the tutorial says is "should" work but I am getting the following error message:

I also noticed the \sources\sxs folder does not exist on the CD (e:\). Do I need to use one of the versions specified in the tutorial?

I posted 2 pictures but I don't think they are being displayed so here is the error textual message :

C:\Windows\system32>dism.exe /online /enable-feature /all /featurename:NetFX3 /S
ource:e:\sources\sxs

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Image Version: 6.1.7601.18489


Error: 87

I just checked my 2008 and there is also no folder. Just bypass that and make SURE you update using Microsoft update until there is nothing left to update.

Let us know if it works for you. It's possible that updating will add the needed software?

Thanks for the quick response! Bypass the entire DISM command?

dism.exe /online /enable-feature /all /featurename:NetFX3 /S
ource:e:\sources\sxs

Yes, bypass that if it's not installed it will create an error later on. I'll see if I can find a command to run that will verify its actually installed. 2008 may install it by default.
