SharePoint AutoSPIinstaller fails with error about "feature not installed"

Long question for you all.

I am using AutoSPInstaller to install and configure a multi-server farm for a customer (SharePoint 2013 Enterprise). In my DEV environment it works perfectly (albeit with some slightly different names).

In the live environment, it gets as far as creating the first Site Collection in the first Web Application, and it errors out - "sharepoint autospinstaller feature with id c85e5759-f323-4efb-b548-443d2216efb5 is not installed in this farm". When I checked the Central Admin site, it was stopped in IIS - when I started it, I was able to access the site - and I am unable to create the Site Collection via the GUI - it returns the same error.

The customer does have various permissions locked down in the environment - this may have something to do with it, or it could be an issue with the SQL server.

Before I try and get the other teams to investigate their side of things, is there anything anyone can suggest that I can check to help me rule out any issues with the SharePoint servers and AutoSPInstaller?

I was able to resolve it - for some strange reason, the Workflows feature had not been installed - even though the files were there.  i ran teh install-spfeatures -allexistingfeatures command, and re-ran the setup - everything is working fine now (so far)
