SharePoint Server 2019 Preview Pre-Req Silent Installation Correction

The instructions for installing the pre-reqs aren’t correct if you look at the PrerequisiteInstaller.exe /? help. Instead, use the switches below.

PrerequisiteInstaller.exe /SQLNCli:<path> /Sync:<path> /AppFabric:<path> /IDFX11:<path> /MSIPCClient:<path> /KB3092423:<Path> /WCFDataServices56:<path> /DotNot472:<path> /MSVCRT141:<path>

There is one addition, MSVCRT11 that isn’t a valid switch, but the file is still required.

Lastly, here are the links for the files required.
