Hi Guys,

I'm trying to install and configure SharePoint 2016 in Windows server 2019. When I run the "Prerequisiteinstaller.exe" file , its showing the error for AppFabric

Windows Server AppFabric : download error

I downloaded the AppFabric setup file but its throwing the error "AppFabric Installation Failed Because Installer MSI Returned with Error Code: 1603"

Please tell me how this can fixed and complete the SharePoint 2016 installation in Windows server 2019.

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having issues related to SharePoint installation, There could be many reasons for this problem. But most common problems due to manual installation and having incorrect system variable for the PowerShell path

    To resolve this Just uninstall the existing installation from the control panel and re-run the SharePoint prerequisites installer or Auto SP Installer.
