When you run the VMware vCenter Installer you will see couple of pre-requisite for vCenter Server over right hand side, Microsoft .Net 3.5 SP1 and Windows Installer v4.5.
If you are running Operating System Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition then you probably have both of them installed. So if you click on Windows Installer 4.5 then it will show you the update is not applicable but if you try to update Microsoft .Net 3.5 SP1 then it will remind you that Microsoft .Net 3.5 SP1 is already installed as a part of windows server feature. But if in case you need to install .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 then make sure you install the .Net Framework 3.5.1 only NOT the WCF Activation because if you select WCF Activation here then it will begin installing IIS role which will cause a little bit of conflict later on as you go about installing the actual vCenter stuff.
Any feedback will be highly appreciated.
