SP2010 AutoSPInstaller Prerequisite Install Issues (Codeplex PS project)

Problem: Install SP2010 using the CodePlex PowerShell Installer (AutoSPInstaller) without internet access.

Add the following KB to the prerequisiteInstaller folder:
  • Windows6.0-KB968930-x64.msu (/POWERSHELL)
  • Windows6.0-KB976394-x64.msu (/KB976394)
  • Windows6.1-KB976462-v2-x64.msu (/KB976462)
  • Windows6.0-KB974405-x64.msu (/IDFXR2)
  • rsSharePoint.msi (/ReportingServices)
  • SpeechPlatformRuntime.msi (/Speech)
  • MSSpeech_SP_en-us_tele.msi (/SpeechLPK)

Error: Error.  An unknown error occurred installing prerequisites at c:\....\AutoSPInstaller.sp1:388 char:14 ...

Fix: Reboot server and retry.


Error: The tool was unable to install SQL 2008 R2 Reporting Services SharePoint 2010 add-in. Install process returned (0X643=1603).  Applies to the codeplex Powershell scripted install.
Fix: Only info I found suggested a re-run fixes the error. Simply re-running the prerequisite installer did not fix the issue for me. A similar error suggesting that i am using the incorrect version of rsSharepoint.msi relating to the Genva framework (claims) not Reporting Services.  I tried manually installing the Reporting services rsSharePoint.msi, it kept failing.  I also tried rsSharePoint_x64.msi, also failed.
Next I ran SharePoint install manually after the manual prerequisites was run as Administrator, failed.

Noticed I had 2 rsSharePoint.msi that are of a different size?  The file I used on 2 Sept 2010 on my Win 2008 R2 WFE was 36.9MB in size, my other was 39MB.  rsSharePoint.msi download

I use the version off the SQL media for getting Reporting Services wirking in the SharePoint mode.


Error: rsSharePoint.msi wont install
Fix: There are version versions of rsSharePoint.msi, ensure you use the correct 36.9MB file.
I downloaded the correct version from
Incorrect 39MB Version as of 2 Sept 2010 .
These file have the same name but they are different and using Windows 2008 R2 for my install only the 36.9MB version works.

If you can't install rsSharePoint.msi (running in admin mode), ensure you have the right version. MS has 2 different verions of the file. I have asked MS to fix/clarify on the issue.
The correct version is 36.9MB can be found at

Microsoft are aware of the problem and are fixing the discrepency.
