  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.6


I am installing Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.6 on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and get the error below:

proper OS template w2k8r2ru_sp1_enterprise was not found

The following error appears in Virtuozzo log files:

CheckOsTemplateExists: Setup could not find a valid OS template C:\vz\download\w2k8r2\x64\4.6\w2k8r2ru_sp1_x64_Enterprise.ex_ Error is 2: The system cannot find the file specified


Installation of PVC onto Windows 2008 R2 SP1 from full distribution without connection to the Internet  is not supported.
The only supported scenario is to install Windows Server 2008 R2  Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter edition English version or Enterprise edition German version with integrated SP1, download PVC autoinstaller from the website and install Parallels Containers.

Not all Windows 2008R2 SP1 editions and locales are supported by Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Windows. For more information refer to this article:
