Installation may not finish successfully, and you may receive the following error message.

Windows Could not Load Device Compatibility Data - Error code: 0x00000002

To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods:

Do not map a drive directly to the Sources folder. Instead, use the net use command to map a drive to the parent folder that contains the Sources folder. 
Run the Setup program by using a universal naming convention (UNC) path instead of by using the net use command to map a drive.
