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:
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.
