Run the Prerequisite Installer in offline mode (FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint)

FAST Search Server 2010

Applies to: FAST Search Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-08-05

The Prerequisite Installer, by default, downloads components from the Microsoft Download Center to the server on which you are installing FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint. This requires Internet access and Windows Firewall open on port 80.

If the server where you are running the Prerequisite Installer does not have Internet access, you can use the Prerequisite Installer in offline mode.

To install prerequisites using the offline mode, follow these steps:

  1. Manually download each prerequisite applicable to your operating system.

  2. Copy the prerequisites to the server where you will run the Prerequisite Installer.

  3. From a command prompt, run the Prerequisite Installer, and specify each prerequisite as a command-line option.

The following table specifies the relevant command-line options:


Command-line option Description Prerequisite downloads Operating system


Identity foundation (KB 974405)


Windows 2008 SP2


Identity foundation (KB 974405)


Windows 2008 R2


Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)


Windows 2008 SP2 / Windows 2008 R2


Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1


Windows 2008 SP2 / Windows 2008 R2


Windows PowerShell 2.0


Windows 2008 SP2


Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB976394)


Windows 2008 SP2


Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB976462)


Windows 2008 R2

To see all Prerequisite Installer command-line options, run the following command from a command prompt:

PrerequisiteInstaller.exe /?

The following example installs the prerequisites on Windows 2008 R2:

PrerequisiteInstaller.exe /IDFXR2:"C:\Windows6.1-KB974405-x64.msu" /VCCRedistPack:"C:\vcredist_x64.exe" /NETFX35SP1:"C:\dotnetfx35setup.exe"  /KB976462:"C:\Windows6.1-KB976462-x64.msu"
