file missing for SQL server 2012

Asked By 270 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Pro,

When I am trying to install SQL server 2012 Express Local DB in my system, I ended up with the error. Installation failed there, not able to continue with this error message. For your information I have windows 8 64 bit operating system. Is there any problem with installation CD or problem with the installation package? Where I find the missing the Cab files? Help me to fix this error.

Error :

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express LocalDB

The file 'ENG_LocalDB_ResourceDb_ldf_64' cannot be installed because the file cannot be found in cabinet file ''. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from installation media, or a problem with this package.

You can try the following steps and see if they have solved your issue.

1. Download and install the latest .NET Framework 4.5. Then try to install again.

2. Make sure that .NET Framework 3.5.1 is turned on.

  • Go to Control Panel >> Uninstall or change a program >> on the left panel, “Turn Windows Features on or off”.
  • From there, turn on .NET Framework 3.5.1.

3. Also, download a clean and latest version- SQL Server 2012 Express SP1.

Now you should have become able to install SQL Server 2012.
