HDP on Windows – Installation Forum

Windows Server 2012 install fail – SRSetRestorePoint API failed

    Seems to be a different error than what I am seeing for others.
    Is there a way to exclude this as a parameter when running
    msiexec /lv c:\hdplog.txt /i “C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\hdp-”

    I have validated the java_home and path variables many, many times.

    Hi Brian,

    Can you confirm the Pre-requisites on your machine are the exact versions of what the documentation suggests?

    If the versions are different, then you will need to uninstall, reboot and re-install the correct pre-req version.
