when I try to install the PowerTools on a 2013 sp1 environment I get the following error: enter image description here

Is anyone familiar with this error and how to fix this?

When I run the installer with logging this is a part of the output where it goes wrong:

  • Can you try running the installing with logging and see what that leads to? Example: msiexec /i "PowerTools 2013 SP1.msi" /L*V "C:\powertools-install.log" Mar 3 '15 at 10:19
  • Thank you for your help. I updated my question with the output of the log. Mar 3 '15 at 12:00

    Could you check if you have the "IIS Management Compatibility" server role installed on the machine? Mar 3 '15 at 13:45
  • It would also help if you could post the entire log file (or make it available somewhere, if you think it's too big for the question) Mar 3 '15 at 13:50
  • Full version of the log is available here: drive.google.com/file/d/0BwulhvOApefecXpXM0hXYi10T2c/… Mar 3 '15 at 15:57

Please ensure that you have installed the "IIS Management Compatibility" server role on your machine. This is needed to modify the Tridion website to add the virtual directories for the PowerTools editor and model.

  • Indeed. Works. serverfault.com/questions/469388/… Jun 13 '16 at 18:14
  • Does Powertools work with Web 8? I have not been able to get it to work within my instances.. Jun 13 '16 at 20:41

    No, there is no version of the PowerTools for Web 8. I don't foresee one in the near future either. There hasn't been much activity on it lately. Personally, I'm thinking about creating individual Alchemy plugins for some of them instead... Jun 14 '16 at 8:50
