During the installation of the XenDesktop VDA on a Windows 2008 R2 server, the installation fails with error:
Failed to configure component ‘Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection’ because it is not installed
More details are available:
After going through the Setup log I found out that the WIndows Firewall service was disabled.
I enabled the service and disabled the Firewall using:
netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off
After re-running the Setup, everything worked fine.
