SharePoint 2013 SP1: Configuration Wizard Issues New Installation, TimeoutException

During an install of SharePoint 2013 SP1 the following issues was encountered post installation where the configuration wizard would fail to register SharePoint services.

The following error was displayed: Exception: System.ServiceProcess.TimeoutException: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.

To correct this issue we add two registry key values:

– “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\<version>\LauncherSettings”
– “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\<version>\LoadBalancerSettings”

With a new key named “AcknowledgedRunningOnAppServer” of DWORD valure of 1

Restart your server and re-run the SharePoint 2013 configuration wizard
