SharePoint 2010 installation Error – Could not create Configuration database

While installing SharePoint, I got an error saying that “Could not create Configuration database - Failed to call GetTypes on assembly Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c The system cannot find the file specified. Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Office.InfoPath, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies.

I have rechecked pre-requisites and re-installed all the pre-requisites. But still Iam facing the same issue. By checking the issue in deep I have found that issue is related to InfoPath. In my machine Iam having InfoPath 2013. It’s blocking SharePoint Configuration wizard to create database.

To fix this issue we have to uninstall InfoPath from current machine. After uninstalling the InfoPath Configuration wizard ran successfully.

Hope this helps.
