Unanswered: Not able to install 'MSSQL Server 2008 R2' 's Management Tools in Windows 7
I'm trying to install MS SQL Server 2008 R2 in my Windows7 - 64bit server. But it fails to install 'Management Tools - Basic and Complete'. I tried many times, but it fails with the following error message with different .msi file name each time.
Error attempting to read from the source install database: 'C:\Windows\Installer\de6e7f.msi'
Please help me in order to overcome this problem.

Reason: missed details
Despite the error message, this is often due to problems writing to c:\Windows\Inf or other system directories. This can be prevented by Anti Virus or Anti spyware, or of course due to lack of user rights.
