AppFabric is not correctly configured SharePoint 2013

If you are planning to install SharePoint 2013 on premise in any of the server, then go through the minimum hardware and software installation requirements for SharePoint 2013. There are few Prerequisites needs to be installed before installing SharePoint 2013. One of the prerequisites is “Windows Server AppFabric”.

This Occurs when I have installed all the PREREQUISITE as installation SharePoint 2013 standalone but during installation of AppFabric for windows server, it is showing an error as “The tool was unable to install Windows Server AppFabric”. I tried using Microsoft web platform Installer and it gets installed successfully installed but when I again run the prerequisites for SharePoint 2013, same error is thrown and prerequisites installation stopped.
