Upon installing WCF Services, the message below appears:
"The wizard was interrupted before AccessData WCF Services could be completely install"
This may also be accompanied by the following message in the Windows Event Viewer:
"Failed to end a Windows Installer transaction . Error 5 occurred while ending the transaction."
or this message in the installer log:
"Installation success or error status: 1603."
1. Completely remove IIS and App Server Role, MAP, and WCF.
2. Reboot server.
3. Reinstall IIS or allow WCF installer pre-requisites to install it.
(Note: In some instances, a complete reinstall of the operating system from a Windows DVD or ISO may be required)
In one scenario, this error was caused by the Async Processing Services as the WCF Services and Work Manager, when installed individually, completely successfully. The root cause is still unknown, but believe to be a corruption of MSDTC, IIS, or other root component of the Async component.
