Unanswered: SQL Server 2012 Express failed install
Well let's just say it is a "stalled" install. Right after the support files are installed it goes away like it is done..with a message saying.." Please wait while MS SQL Server processes the request" or somesuch thing... I am at a standstill until I get this going. I read on blogs.msdn what to check..the log file...and sure enough the failures are exactly what the blogger says they are. The "fix" is to add some reg keys, and put software and files in various mssql folders. Well i do not have them, the install comes off a page the instructor has us use and of course the install is massive...
Complete message from blogs.msdn on SS Exp 2012 stalled install
Here you go MCrowley,
Another tidbit of information off that "fix" on the blog. I did capture the needed files an folders during another attempt at an install this morning so I do have all the needed info if I decide to go that route. I ma doing this for a school class and I cant get the instructor to respond to my woes with this.
