Hello Everybody,

Can someone help with this issue:

_WARNING: Cannot locate SharePoint binaries; please check that the files are in
the \SharePoint subfolder as per new folder structure.
Enter "y" to proceed if you know that SharePoint is already installed, or Ctrl-C
to exit:_

The location are:
  • C:\Autosp\AutoSPInstaller\AutoSPInstallerInput.xml
  • C:\AutoSp\SP\2013\SharePoint
  • C:\AutoSp\SP\2013\SharePoint\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles
  • C:\AutoSp\SP\2013\Updates
  • C:\AutoSp\SP\2013\LanguagePacks
  • C:\AutoSp\SP\2013\SharePoint\updates (extracted updates
Thank you very much

same problem on my environment.
SharePoint incl. SP1 on 2012 R2 Std Server
the problem also occurs after i installed the binaries via GUI.

Thanks for help!

This is not an error. This is a WARNING. It is meant to save you the trouble to have the SharePoint binaries placed in the SP\2013\SharePoint folder if you have already installed the binaries via the GUI. It is safe to ignore if binaries are already installed and all what you need is to configure the farm.

If however, binaries are not installed then proceeding further will result in more errors.
