An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPUpgradeException was thrown during SharePoint Configuration wizard at step-2


Like many others, I have SharePoint 2007 installed on my Windows Server 2003 with SP2 box for custom development tasks; however, I also have Office 2010 Beta 2 installed on my machine of which has caused me a problem when attempting to run psconfig after installing the October 2009 CU patches (instructions to get these updates can be found from the SharePoint blog post here -> http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2009/10/29/october-2009-cumulative-update-packages-for-sharepoint-server-2007-and-windows-sharepoint-services-3-0.aspx).

The Configuration Wizard will immediately throw the following exception after entering step 2:

PS C:> psconfig -cmd upgrade

If you look into the Upgrade.log file you will see the following associated exception text:

WORK-AROUND: The issue appears to be associated to having the new Office 2010 beta products installed and specifically InfoPath 2010. I am investigating the assembly conflict but the easiest work-around for now is to simply uninstall InfoPath 2010 (beta) and re-run psconfig again (you should not need to uninstall any other 2010 beta product and this will likely be a non-issue at RTM).

    FYI removing infopath 2010 also fixed this issue when installing MOSS 2007 on a windows 7 workstation with SQL server 2008 R2 as the back end (i’m setting up a dev box).

    Thanks for the (now ancient) post – it really helped me out!
