AppFabric installation failed because installer MSI returned with error code 1603


Today we are writing about an issue occurring when we are trying to installing SharePoint 2016 on Microsoft Windows server 2016 standard version, the prerequisites installer fails with the error "AppFabric installation failed because installer MSI returned with error code : 1603".

We have found this solution about this issue like here seems to be that the path to the PowerShell executable that's needed for the AppFabric installation was incorrect. 

Below are the steps with screen shots which we followed to rid out from this issue:

We will go to the system environmental Variables and we will do entry for the same.

  • Go to system properties and by click on Right click on computer and selecting Properties and select advanced system setting.


  • Select Environmental variables under advanced tab, it will launch to next wizard


  • Here delete exiting entry if we have any other and create new entry by clicking on new and save the same.
Variables Name: PSModulePath
Variable values: %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
