"Microsoft SharePoint Foundation administration tool has stopped working" Error During Install of SharePoint 2016 SP1

An issue I have recently run into when installing SharePoint 2016 with SP1 slipstreamed is the following error:

At first, I thought that at the time, it was related to the binaries being on a network share for the install… however, I have also encountered the same issue when installing locally from the server (Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter running on VMWare).

Happens towards the end of the installation:

Errors that show up in the Event Log are:

This seems to happen about 4-6 times during the install process. This has happened across all servers in the farm. I have done some research into this – appeared to be a known problem with prior versions, but do not have an answer at this time.

My solution to the problem is straight forward enough, just click Close Program. I have not run into any lasting effects after doing so. Lets hope that doesn’t change 🙂
