XenDesktop VDA installation fails in Component Initialization step

During the installation of the XenDesktop VDA on a Windows 2008 R2 server, the installation fails with error:

Failed to configure component ‘Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection’ because it is not installed

After going through the Setup log I found out that the WIndows Firewall service was disabled.



I enabled the service and disabled the Firewall using:

netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off

After re-running the Setup, everything worked fine.
