Error Installing TFS 2010 - "...not a valid win32 application."

Hi All,

Having installed 2008 R2, fully updated, SharePoint Foundation 2010 - I'm currently getting a problem installing Team Foundation Server 2010.  Please see screenshot.

Note:  This is a guest VM on a 2008 R2 hyper-v server.

OK, so, check with re-downloaded file once again. Sometimes ISO file is corrupted during download or it's not fully downloaded. I had the same problem few times with Hype-V Server 2008 R2 :/ (in my case PROXY server was guilty ;) )

Are you sure that it is 2008 R2 not 2008 R1 with SP2 ? It looks like there is problem that TFS is 64bit but OS is 32 bit. This is only a guess from my side.

Can you post here and image from winver command, please?

Regards,
Krzysztof

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

OK, it leads to conclusion that TFS installation media is broken. Can you verify that it's possible to run it on any other 64bit plaform? Maybe ISO was broken or burning process failed?

I don't have another platform I can easily try to install it on right now.

As for the ISO I'm just mounting it with Hyper-V.  I have re-downloaded it already.

Re-downloaded it again, works!  Corrupted ISOs are starting to get on my nerves.
