An error has occurred while attempting to download or verify required prerequisite components and Setup cannot continue in Configuration Manager 2012

When you’re trying to run the setupdl.exe in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, you get this following error. It says to review the configmgrsetup.log file for further details. Typically the configmgrsetup.log file will be created in the same location as the setupdl.exe file. But because you’re running off a DVD and a DVD is not a writable location, the log file does not get created.


What’s the issue? In my case, the computer that I’m trying to run this does not have a connection to the internet. How careless of me! I just wish the error said something more specific like not being able to connect to the server or something along the lines.

    • For me it was a case of the server not being able to connect out to pull down the bits needed. Have you checked on that?
