Configuration Failed – Failed to create sample data

I was trying to install SP Foundation on my Hyper-V machine, and I faced this problem:

createSampleData

After searching and searching online, some people mentioned activating services and trying to run the configuration wizard again, others mentioned navigating to Microsoft Office Servers folder, which doesn’t exist anymore in the RTM release of SP Foundation, but the same principle works for the RTM. All you need to do is to navigate to the following path:

c:Program FilesWindows SharePoint Services15.0Data, and you’ll find an Analytics folder with a GUIC appended to it. All you need is to share this folder.

Hope this helps someone out there as it took a while for me to resolve.
