Unpack the SharePoint Foundations installation files.


Please be sure to have all of the SharePoint Foundations Prerequisites downloaded,  SharePoint Foundations 2013 Offline Part 1 ( Download all Prerequisite software )

For installing SharePoint Foundations 2013 SP1 offline you require the prerequisiteinstaller.exe file which can be unpacked from the SharePoint.exe file that you may have already downloaded or you can download from here.

For this posting at the Root of C i Created a Folder called "SPF2013" which i copied all the SharePoint Prerequisite files. Within the "SPF2013" Folder i created a folder called "Core"  ( C:\SPF2013\Core )

  1. Open up the Command Prompt, you may need to run as administrator 
  2. Change Directory to the location where the sharepoint.exe file is located for this posting i used the following command
    • cd c:\SPF2013
  3. Now lets extract the prerequisiteinstaller.exe file by typing in the following command
    • sharepoint.exe /extract:"C:\SPF2013\Core"
  4. Once you click on enter and execute the Command after a few seconds you should receive the following popup indicating the files have been extracted.

Now just verify that the files have been extracted

    Hi, I installed prerequisites using this exe. But I want to install SharePoint Foundation. I tried setup.exe but it told that "The language of this installation package is not supported by your system". What to do now?
