Remote Desktop Services Installation failing on Compatibility Check


Having a bit of a nightmare installing RDS on a brand new Windows 2012 R2 Server

The error I am getting is attached as a screen dump to this ticket.

I have gone through countless URL sites trying to fix this but am getting no joy.

I have done the following:-
Enable-PSRemoting -Force and can confirm PSRemoting works to and from the server
Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Shell\MaxMemoryPerShellMB 1000
IPV6 Disabled
netsh winhttp reset proxy
Set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HTTP\Parameters\MaxFieldLenght - 65564
Set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HTTP\Parameters\MaxRequestBytes - 65564
Rebooted DC
Tried installing from Powershell
Firewall is disabled
Tried installing with domain admin account and Enterprise account
Tried on a different server and the same problem
Moved server out of OU for GPO settings and tried without success

Have now run out of ideas.

Are you doing this while logged into the target machine, or remotely from a different one? If the latter, maybe try logging onto the target machine?

Tried remotely and on the target machine multiple times no joy.

Built a new server in AWS and this new build works fine. Can only put it down to a Windows patch or the build version used by AWS.
