While I was configuring a hybrid SharePoint Server 2019 farm using the Hybrid Picker, I got into an annoying little error that the Hybrid Configuration Wizard was not doing anything on the “Checking prerequisites” phase, just an empty screen like the one you see below:
And when you go to the next screen, there are no features that are available, because the prerequisite checker didn’t verify anything .
One of the first thing I tried, as every good admin, is to try and run the app as an Administrator! However, trying to run it as an administrator using the normal, right click way didn’t even star the application! Luckily, PowerShell to the rescue!
If you’re having troubles like I did, open up PowerShell as an Administrator and simply run the following cmdlet, of course replacing the path with your path to the Hybrid Config Wizard!
& 'C:\Users\vlad.catrinescu\Desktop\Microsoft SharePoint Hybrid Configuration Wizard.appref-ms'
The app should now open as an admin, and prerequisite checker work like a charm!
