As part of creating a developer virtual machine you need to install the SharePoint 2013 bits. Now with the release of Service Pack 1 you can install both SharePoint 2013 and Service Pack 1 in one run.
But when I installed the software bits an exception was raised.
Problem Event Name: OfficeClassicSetup
SETUP EXE VERSION: 15.0.4454.1000
SETUP DLL NAME: SVRSETUP.DLL
SETUP DLL VERSION: 15.0.4569.1503
ERROR CODE: 1603
MSI HRESULT: Unspecified
ERROR DETAILS: FC73469E
FIRST ERROR CODE: 1603
OS Version: 6.3.9600.2.0.0.272.7
Locale ID: 1043
After digging around on the internet and trying different solutions the failing of the installation seems to be related to the CPU count. After increasing the number of virtual processors on the VM to 2 processors and re-running the prerequisites installer and SharePoint 2013 installer everything worked like a charm.
- Increase virtual processor count to at least 2
- Re-run SharePoint 2013 prerequisites installer
- Re-run SharePoint 2013 installer

On April 1st and 2nd in Haarlem (The Netherlands) the first European Office 365 Connect took place. Speakers from over the world (like Dan Holme, Seb Matthews, Marc Reguera and many more) visited Haarlem and did sessions related to Office 365.
I’ve done a session about Apps for Office together with Visual Studio 2013. This was a kind of follow-up session for “The New SharePoint Online Apps – Napa in Action” from Patrick Lamber. You can find my slide deck below.
The demo was around building a Wikipedia Task Pane app which leverages the Wikipedia API for searching Wikipedia. Below a screenshot of the Task Pane App for Office inside the Word 2013 (desktop) client.
Once the app was done it’s deployed to Windows Azure via a Web Deploy package and the XML manifest is made available to end-users to consume from the Corporate Catalog (hosted in SharePoint Online). After configuring the Office client the Corporate Catalog is available from within Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
