Hi Brian,

I amended the "Powershell script to pre-download prerequisites" from your project to get the prerequisites for SharePoint 2013 to do the Offline installation using AutoSPInstaller.

# SP2013 Pre-requisites
$UrlList = ("", #
            "", #
            "", #
            "", #
            "", #
            "", #
            "", #
            "", #
            "", #
            "" #

Thanks Paul, do you know if these URLs are valid for the RTM release?

Also please note I've updated the download notes for the script you're referring to; all its functionality is being migrated to AutoSPSourceBuilder ( which, like AutoSPInstaller, uses an XML file for input.

Hi Brian,

For my SP2013 RTM build I am downloading the following 13 files (working):

  4. (
  5. (
  6. (
  7. (
  8. (
  9. (
  10. (
  11. (
  12. (
  13. (

The top 3 are for SP2013 on Windows 2008 R2 SP1 from  It looks like I need to add another:

Thanks for the point to  This is very useful as I have repeatedly built the slipstream up manually for SP2010 over the past few years, this will save a lot of time.

Another item worth mentioning is that on my Windows 2008R2 SP1 SharePoint 2013 installation the WCFDataServices.exe is failing.  This is caused by me need certificates which Windows 2008 R2 SP patch does not have.  When WCFDataServices.exe installs it does try go to the Internet to find the certs.  My work around is that I added the rootsupd.exe file to my download files and edited the AutoSPInstalller script to run the PS once per SP2013 VM but a manual install works also.

Replaced these url's in de 2010 pre script. Works like a charm. :-)

After start in Offline mode AutoSPInstall and all prerequisites files have been installed I got error in SharePoint bineries instalation that two prerequisites still isn't installed, below list of missing prerequisites.
  1. sync framework runtime v1.0 sp1 x64
  2. sql server 208 r2 sp1 native client
I downloaded all files from previous post and still something is missing.

I have SharePoint 2013 RTM and Windows Server 2012.

Any ideas ?

Cheers Bart.
