When attempting to install Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 I get the following error message.

Windows Server Features or Role Services required by this product are not enabled.  See image below.

 Error message when installating Sharepoint 2010
However I have Roles installed for Application Server and Web IIS so I do not know what else is needed.

When I inititially went to install it I got a message listing many pre-requisits that had to be installed and I installed them. However this one I cannot seem to satisfy.

please verify this is not your situation:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2276219

"Installing Office Web Apps is not supported on a Windows 7 machine. The use of SharePoint 2010 on a Windows 7 machine is only for developer situations and has limited SharePoint functionality. "

"Office Web Apps will only install when the following requirements are met:

·         Windows 2008 Server x64 SP2 or R2
And
·         SharePoint Foundation 2010 or SharePoint server 2010"

Yes, PowerShell 2.0 is installed and also .NET 3.5.
Originally they were listed as required items and I installed them and then they disappeared off the list of pre-requisites.

If nothing else is running on the box, remove the APP and WEB roles from Server, then let the Prerequisite tool install/config them.

What about the features? Maybe not all were installed correctly?

Thanks for the feedback. I noticed that I do some 2 pending updates that will not install. I get error code "WindowsUpdate_80070490" "WindowsUpdate_dt000". It appears that this points to a corrupted CBS system file. So I think this could be the cause. Once I resolved this issue I will try again.
ACH1LLES, I didn't realize there is a pre-requisistes tool. I will definately try that, thank you.

For what it helps, i had the exact same error on the 2 critical Wind updates; i ended up by doing manual download and install.

I found the pre-requisit tool in the root of the installation CD. I ran it and it solved my problem. Thanks ACH1LLES!!
BTW, I did not have to remove APP and WEB roles prior to running it.

I didn't realize the author can close out a question. I thought the author accepts a solution and then the question gets closed out automatically.
