    Hi, Thanks for this. Great work. Typo in second command. Should be – Add-WindowsFeature as-net-framework. Cheers, Malc 🙂

    sorry to be picky but there is a space in the web-asp-net package. Also Why install desktop experience? Are you are the media binaries for 2008 R2 SP1? cheers

      Thanks for the typos!

      Reason for desktop experience:
      Conferencing Attendant and Conferencing Announcement Service use the Windows Media audio (WMA) file format to play prompts, music, and announcements. The WMA file format requires the Windows Media Format Runtime to run properly.

    I didn’t think you needed to install Desktop Experience as long as you ran this command line and then restarted.

    %systemroot%\system32\dism.exe /online /add-package /packagepath:%windir%\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-Media-Format-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.7601.17514.mum /ignorecheck

    Is this incorrect?
