Installing OCS 2007 R2 on Windows 2008R2

Posted by chrisbeams on June 23, 2010

If you try and do the install it will fail (or appear to do nothing) on installing :

“The Windows Media Format Runtime is required in order to install this component. Installing the WMFR may require a system restart to complete the installation. Click OK to continue with the installation”

To get round this (but only in a test lab) you can do the following:

pkgmgr.exe /ip /m:”%windir%\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-Media-Format-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.0.6001.18000.mum”
