I'm trying to install the Sitecore v9.3 with Sitecore Install Assistance, however, I did get this error.

Note: The Sitecore.IdentityServer 4.0.0 rev. 00257 (OnPrem)_identityserver.scwdp.zip file does exist.

Log File:

Unable to parse [resolvepath(variable('IdentityServer_Package'))] - 
Exception calling "InvokeWithContext" with "2" argument(s): "The running         
command stopped because the preference variable "ErrorActionPreference"

r105)\Sitecore.IdentityServer 4.0.0 rev. 00257 
(OnPrem)_identityserver.scwdp.zip' because it does not exist."

SIA Error:

This error can also occur if you forget to each of the scwdp files in the zip file to the root of your install folder when using SIF; e.g the zip files in: XP0 Configuration files 9.3.0 rev. 003498.zip


I did find a solution to this issue. It looks like a similar issue happened when Sitecore v9.3 is installed by using the "Sitecore Installation Framework" PowerShell scripts. Instead of updating "install.ps1" you have to update "setup.exe.config" file.


  1. Open the file "setup.exe.config" file which is under the root folder of the installation package that you downloaded from Sitecore (Sitecore 9.3.0 rev. 003498 (Setup XP0 Developer Workstation rev. 1.1.0-r105))
  2. Search for value=".\Sitecore.IdentityServer * rev. * (OnPrem)_identityserver.scwdp.zip"
  3. Update the value with the actual file name like value=".\Sitecore.IdentityServer 4.0.0 rev. 00257 (OnPrem)_identityserver.scwdp.zip"

  4. Save an restart the installation process.

Note: If this does not work. Rename the "Sitecore.IdentityServer 4.0.0 rev. 00257 (OnPrem)_identityserver.scwdp.zip" for something simple like "IdentityServer.scwdp.zip" update the "setup.exe.config". Restart the installation process. This will work.

I have recorded a Sitecore Tutorial and explained how to install Sitecore v9.3 and in this video, I also explained how I solved this issue.



Faced the same issue.

It was because of my FULLPATH name length to 'Sitecore.IdentityServer 4.0.0 rev. 00257 (OnPrem)_identityserver.scwdp.zip' was more than Windows MAX_PATH limit (260 characters).

In your case full path name length is 266 characters:

Just solved by moving to installation files to 'D:/s93install'.
