Please help. I am very server challenged but have been assigned to the task of finding out why the configuration wizard for sharepoint is failing. This is a development server running MS Window server 2003 R2 SE SP1, .NET 3.0 framework is installed. The configuration wizard bombs out and here is one of the errors in the log:

02/08/2007 09:08:14 9 ERR Task services has failed with an unknown exception

02/08/2007 09:08:14 9 ERR Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)

at Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.MSSITLB.IGatherApplication2.BackupRegistry(Boolean fBackupNow)

at Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.GathererApplication.Provision()

at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.ServicesTask.InstallServiceInstances(Boolean provisionTheServiceInstancesToo, String serviceRegistryKeyName, Object sharepointServiceObject)

at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.ServicesTask.InstallServices(Boolean provisionTheServicesToo)

at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.ServicesTask.Run()

at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.TaskThread.ExecuteTask()

I am wondering if there is something that is not fully installed that needs to be like something in IIS. And, since it is a development server, I image things are only installed or turned as a "AS needed basis".

CAn someone please provide some ideas or suggestions on what may be lacking here or things to try.

Thanks much for any help!

Had this one in BETA when I tried to install an english MOSS on a german Server.

Since it was a testenvironment i just reinstalled the server with an english verison of the OS and all was fine...

This issue is driving me nuts. Again, my server skills lack so I am pretty limited to what I can do. It would have been nice for the configuration wizard to report "WHAT FILES IT CAN'T FIND".

Is there another forum I can look to that may help solving this issue.

Again, any troublshooting tips, previous experiences, guesses will certainly be considered!

Thanks!

I believe we are experiencing a similar error, we are able to install Sharepoint 3.0 fine, but when we try to run the Sharepoint Configuration wizard, it fails performing configuration task 5 of 10 with an exception of type system.io.filenotfoundexception was thrown. I looked in the log but it did not specify which files it could not find.

It would be really cool if someone could help us both out with this error. I'm sure were not the only ones that are baffled by this.

Please help us.
