Jenkins Installation on Windows Server

This post is about issue encountered today and resolution for the same. Below error was returned by Jenkins windows installer

There was no log file associated with it. To debug it we need the log file for this installation. Below command would provide us log file

After few google searches enable .NET 3.5 features, this did not resolve the error

By closely examining the errors you would see error

ExecFirewallExceptions: Installing firewall exception2 Jenkins (C:
\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\jre\bin\java.exe)

Fix was it was provided in link. By enabling windows firewall installation was successful.

Posting it hoping it is useful for larger audience.

Happy Learning!!!
