SharePoint 2016 Prerequisite Installer Hangs at Information Protection and Control Client 2.1

Published on Author Rob WindsorLeave a comment

I’ve run the SharePoint 2016 prerequisite installer on two different machines so far. Once it ran fine and once it hung while installing the Information Protection and Control Client 2.1. I Googled around for a bit and found you could override the installer for each prerequisite via command line switches. I found the information I needed in Installing the SharePoint 2016 Prerequisites Offline using PowerShell by Nik Charlebois.

I used the link in Nik’s post to download the installer for the Information Protection and Control Client 2.1 to a folder named Install on my C: drive. I then ran the prerequisite installer from the command line using  C:\prerequisiteinstaller.exe /MSIPCClient:”C:\Install\setup_msipc_x64.exe” and it worked.
