Team Foundation Server 2013: Installation error

Last week, we finally found some time to upgrade our company TFS environment to Team Foundation 2013.

The upgrade didn’t go as smooth as we wanted. The installation immediately failed with the following error message:

TF400167 : Installation failed for the package(netfxfullredist_43) with the following status 0x800713EC, restart state 00x0

If you see this error, don’t panic. It’s an easy one to fix. When you install Team Foundation Server 2013, .NET 4.5.1 will be installed first as a prerequisite. The thing is that the .NET 4.5.1 installation requires 2.8GB(!) of free space to install.

We only had 2GB of free disk space available, so this explained the error message.

Cleaning up some old files on the TFS server, solved the issue and the installation could continue…
