This error occurs because the support for 32-bit applications and .NET Framework 2.0 is not enabled by default in Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Core installation.


To resolve the issue, perform the following steps:

Step 1: Enable the support for 32-bit applications:

  1. Launch cmd.exe.
  2. Enter the ‘dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:ServerCore-WOW64’ command.

Step 2: Enable .NET Framework 2.0:

  1. Launch cmd.exe.
  2. Enter the ‘dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx2-ServerCore’ command.
  3. Enter the ‘dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx2-ServerCore-WOW64’ command.
