Dependency Checker Fix for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1


This post is for users of the following training kits and training courses:

If you recently installed Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 and attempt to run installer / dependency checker scripts from either of these training kits, you will get the following error:

Your Current OS is not Supported

The reason for the error is that SP1 changes the Windows build number from 7600 to 7601.  We will be publishing updates soon that fix this issue, but there is an easy work around.  Simply edit the file named dependencies.dep with notepad.  It’s located in the source/setup folder of the demo or hands-on lab you are trying to install.  Locate the following line and add build 7601:

<os type="Vista;Server" buildNumber="2600;3790;6001;6002;7000;7100;7600;7601">

    Any other check? I already do that, and still displays the same message

    if you are trying to run those samples in windows 8 add 9200 too. And also in future it may change, you can find your current operating system's current build number from Registry.
