Issues installing Desktop Experience SBS 2011


Having problems installing the desktop experience feature on a sbs 2011 server. The server run's through the install ok, reporting its completed and needs a restart to finish. On startup it fails to install the feature, rolls back and restarts again. Once you login the install resumes and comes straight back to needing a restart - this loop happens 2-3 times before it reports a failure to install.

There's two errors showing in event viewer:

Update InkSupport of package InkSupport failed to be turned on. Status: 0x800719e4.

Update DesktopExperience of package DesktopExperience failed to be turned on. Status: 0x800719e4.

You should not run the desktop experience on SBS. Attempting to force the install  can cause issues with exchange and sharepoint.

Dam... I'm trying to install something that requires media player. Is there anyway to manually install it?
Cliff GaliherCommented:
No. Anything at requires media player should be installed on a separate LOB server. Unless you like breaking exchange... ;)
