Windows Server Appfabric is not configured correctly

The following error occured while loading the extended type data file: , C:\Program Files\AppFabric 1.1 for windows server\PowershellModules\ApplicationServer\Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Management.types.ps1xml : File skipped because of the following validation exception: AuthorizationManager check failed.


Windows Server Appfabric is not configured correctly

The above errors will occur during the installation of SharePoint Server 2013 software. All the SharePoint 2013 Pre-requisites will be installed successfully  except "AppFabric"  when executing the "Setup.exe". This pre-requisite should be installed manually and the steps are given below:

Solution Steps:
1. Uninstall the "AppFabric" through the control panel, if it is already installed fully/partially
2. Restart the server.
3. Download the "WindowsServerAppFabricSetup_x64.exe" file from internet
4. Copy the "WindowsServerAppFabricSetup_x64.exe" to "C:\" or "D:\" drive. (ex: "D:\")
4. Open the command prompt with "Administrator Privilege"
5. Go to the "SharePoint 2013" setup folder in command prompt (ex: "d:\SP2013Setup\")
6. Type the below command (based on the above mentioned example path)

prerequisiteinstaller.exe /AppFabric:D:\WindowsServerAppFabricSetup_x64.exe

7. You will see the below "SharePoint Products Preparation Tool" screen.

8. In the middle of the installation, you will be asked to restart the server. Press "Ok" to restart.
9. After the restart, the system will resume the AppFaric installation
10. Finally you will get the "Installation complete" message.
11. Now you can start the "SharePoint 2013" installation without any issue.

Thats it....

Update (on 28-Sep-2014)
Still if there is an error during the installation, then there might be an error in "Windows Update" service. This service should be enabled. So, you need to go to "services.msc" and enable the "Windows Update" service.
