How to fix "Wizard ended permaturely" when installing Azure PowerShell via MSI

Well this sounds like a straight forward task. Download the MSI package from Github run the installer and done...

But there is one tiny obstacle thay you may encounter. This is the error message I received when clicking through the installer

Microsoft Azure PowerShell - May 2020 Setup Wizard ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified....

Hm okay, let's run the installer again and create a detailled log for further debugging hints.

msiexec /i C:\Temp\Az-Cmdlets-4.1.0.32917-x64.msi /l*v C:\Temp\Setup.txt

And indeed. Further down in the log I've found this:

SFXCA: Failed to get requested CLR info. Error code 0x80131700 SFXCA: Ensure that the proper version of the .NET Framework is installed, or that there is a matching supportedRuntime element in CustomAction.config. If you are binding to .NET 4 or greater add useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy=true to the element.

So long story short. You need to install .NET Framework 3.5 first and then re-run the setup.

cmd => control => Turn Windows features on or off => check ".NET Framework 3.5

That's it for today. Happy hacking 👾
