Hello Sitecore developer,
While installing Sitecore 9, I was stuck with the following error:
Install-SitecoreConfiguration: Cannot validate argument on parameter ‘Path’. The running command stopped because the preference variable “ErrorActionPreference” or common parameter is set to Stop: The term ‘C:\Program Files\iis\Microsoft Web Deploy V3\msdeploy.exe’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
It is very easy to fix this error. What you need to do is just download and install IIS web-deploy. Click on the link to download the web-deploy tool: WEB-DEPLOY TOOL
That’s it. Let the Sitecore 9 installation ball rolling….
