Robotics Studio Installation Failure - Server 2012 R2


When I try to install Robotics Studio on the client's Windows Server 2012 R2 cloud instance, I get the following error:

Product: OpenSpan Studio for Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action OpenSpan.Studio.Shell.exe, location: E:\app\PegaRobotics\OpenSpan.Studio.Shell.exe, command: /setup

Digging a little deeper, I see this in a log file left behind on C:

I tried installing VS2015.2.exe myself, but it refuses to do so without Visual Studio already being present.

Looking over the installation document, I see that there is a required update - - but I've confirmed that is already installed on this box.

I see instructions as well about downloading and installing .NET - but the document also says this is supposed to happen automatically (this machine can see the internet) so I don't want to head down that rabbit hole unless someone tells me why it didn't happen through regular setup.

Any help is welcome, thanks!
