Finding Fixes to Just About Anything and Everything

Cannot install or upgrade integration services in Hyper-V

Posted by Russell Wright on June 1, 2009

I found this little fix the other day and just wanted to post it as a good solution to the problem I was having.

I was unable to use the mouse (yes, I do know how to use the keyboard) when I opened one of my servers from Hyper-V Manager and was attempting to install integration services to resolve the problem. However, integration services would never install/upgrade. When I was attempting to install integration services, it would throw an error attempting to install the “Windows Driver Framework.” I would get an error “The system cannot find the file specified.” I found this post  that had the solution that worked for me.

Simply delete these two files:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\wdf01000.sys and
C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\wdfldr.sys

and then reinstall integration services.

This may or may not work for you, depending upon your exact problem. My VMs were moved from Virtual Server to Hyper-V.
