I recently created a VMWare container with Windows 2012 R2 Server Core, I configured it and did all Windows Updates.
When I try to install SmarterMail build 6985, I get an error at the Configuring Windows Features, after it hangs there for a few minutes.
The error is as follows :
Windows couldn't connect to the Internet to download the necessary files. Make sure that you're connected to the Internet, and click "Retry" to try again.
I searched google and various forums say this is due to .NET 3.5 not being installed, SmarterMail build 6985 says it requires .NET 4.7, which is installed, do I need to install .NET 3.5 also, or enable it? I looked at the log file, and it is hard to determine what the issue is from it.
I do not see anyone posting about this issue on this forum, so I might try an older build, maybe something broke with the latest build?
