Recently I have been wanting to install Windows Server 2012, SQL 2012, SharePoint 2013 & TFS 2012 all on one VM for testing, but after installing SQL and SP – running the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard for the first time, produced the following error:
I have found a few different fixes, such as running Windows Update, installing hotfixes but the only one that worked for me was the fix mentioned on this MSDN forum post:
1. Go to “regedit.exe”
2. Browse through “HKLM_Local_Machine/Software/Microsoft/Shared Tools/Web Server Extensions/15.0/WSS/”.
3. Then change the value of attribute named “ServerRole” from SINGLESERVER to APPLICATION.
