sharepoint configuration wizard at final step issued message as follows:
failed to create the configuration database.
an exception of type system.io.filenotfoundexception ws thrown. additional exception informaion. could not load file or assemble 'microsoft.identity.model. version=18.104.22.168,culture=neutral, publickeytoken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of it's dependencies. the system cannot find the file specified.
the only option was to 'finish' the wizard and exit without a successful install.
can anyone help me with diagnosing this problem.
i am running windows 7 on a dell machine and installed all the software requirements for sharepoint install. with the exception of a hotfix for sql server which when i followed the lin appeared to be updated to a more recently posted hotfix. i downloaded this and installed successfully.
