Installing the right version of SharePoint

By powerpivotgeek (, on March 4th, 2010

So you think that you have done everything right, but still SQL setup (in PowerPivot SharePoint integration mode) still reports “You don’t have a ‘Complete’ SharePoint installation.” How can this happen?

  • You might not have followed the installation guide. It tells you to first select “Farm” and then “Complete” on your first two screens after you enter your SharePoint product key. If you are installing on a domain controller, then the only selection that is supported is “Farm” and “Complete”, thus on a domain controller you won’t even be asked – it just defaults to this configuration. They don’t even offer you the possibility of running in an unsupported configuration. Just double check what you asked for. BTW: If you are running a RC0 version of SharePoint there is a known bug that a “Standalone” rather than “Farm” install is done. This is a RC0 only bug and it was fixed in a later build.
