Nathan,

You are getting the error because the SQL server installation hits on a bug in Windows 2008 with regards to multiple entries in Registry from an installer running out of a compressed file or ISO image.

Solution:

If running the installer from a CD/DVD;

Disable autoplay > RIGHT CLICK on CD/DVD click  on OPEN > RIGHT CLICK on  Setup.exe > Run as Administrator

If running from a compressed file or ISO image;

Uncompress into a temporary folder > RIGHT CLICK on Setup.exe > Run as Administrator

Hope this Helps,

TechDaddy

Hello Nathan Ward,

In order to resolve this issue, you can use one of the following methods;

·         You must make sure that the INSTALLER is the only active window that has been opened at that particular time. On Windows Server you might not have any other windows, close other windows opened on the desktop.

·         Run the setup.exe file from the windows explorer and then close the explorer window once the setup is initiated. The setup window must be focused on throughout the whole installation process.
