Gotcha while installing wireless driver in Windows Server 2016 TP4

If you’re hitting an error similar to the following while trying to install a wireless driver:

A service installation section in this inf is invalid.

Just make sure you install the feature Wireless LAN Service through Server Manager or by running the following PowerShell cmdlet:

Add-WindowsFeature -Name Wireless-Networking

I hope that will save a few people some hair pulling! 😉

  1. Thanks a lot, I was about to give up on this when I found this page. Don’t know why MS did this (I gess is for safety since servers usually don’t have wireless…)

  2. Stupid Microsoft, you make me look bad 😀

    Thanks for this buddy, worked like a charm! absolute life saver

  3. Just wanted to thank you for the solution. I had insomnia then I thought of searching online for a solution and yours was the first I looked at around 3:53am. I spent 2 hours last night fighting this before I gave up and went to sleep.
