SQL 2012 Error with Installation

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello TechyV Experts!

I need help on installing SQL Server 2012 with my Windows 7 32-bit PC. I tried logging in as the Administrator and then run the setup. Everything went well but when in the SQL Server DB Services, it fails with error “One or more command-line switches were invalid”.
I am in the current ql_config_repair_loc_wmi_provider_cpu32_1033 with a log stating “The SQL server feature 'SQL_Engine_Core_Inst' is not in a supported state for repair, as it was never successfully configured. Only from successful installations can be repaired. To continue, remove the specified SQL Server feature. ” 
What should I do with the following errors so I can continue with the installation?
I’m not quite sure if SQL 2012 is already release and that is why it is causing me this problem.
Does anyone here who successfully installed SQL 2012?
I already tried to perform a fresh install of it but it doesn’t help.

Can you get the Log file from the location mentioned above: C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server100Setup BootstrapLog20110508_165959Detail.txt

The error "One or more command-line switches were invalid." generally talks about WMI/MOF related errors.
Verify WMI inconsistencies. Use the winmgmt command with the /salvagerepository switch.
[FIX: MOF compilation errors occur and Setup fails for SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2].
This might have more information regarding the errors.

 I am giving you the solution in step by step manner to solve your problem. I think it will be helpful to you.

1. Please check your OS has Win 7 SP1. Otherwise you have to update win 7.

2. Uninstall your SQL server and reinstall it. Before reinstall, please check registry files and log file. Some files may remain inside of registry and log. If some files are remaining, please delete it manually and restart your computer. After that, you can reinstall SQL server.

3. This error may occur due to MOF and WMI connection problem. Please follow those links. It may be helpful to you.
