I was trying to install sql server 2008 R2 in windows 8 pc.
First i installed sql server 2008 r2 by using UI mode in windows 8 PC without enabling .net 3.5. While installing i got an warning like shown below.


I clicked on "Run the program without getting help" and then it installed properly.

But when i do the install using configuration file in silent mode i got same warning and i clicked on "Run the program without getting help" and after that at the middle of installation i got the error like

Microsoft (R) SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup 10.50.1600.01

So my doubt is without enabling .net 3.5 also we can install sql server 2008 r2.But why i got the error while installing using configuration file?

Is your configuration File Directory pointing towards the same directory you have on the PC?

I think you need to install .NET 3.5 SP1.

See prerequisite sql server 2008 R2

Hi Winmansoft

You got your configuration file form a previous installation that pointed towards certain folders for installation requirements. My question is, do you have the same folder configured on your new PC where you are trying to install. for instance my install dir might be d:\prog file\msssql..... from last config but on new machine I might not have a d: drive. I haven't installed from config but from what I have read about it in the past it automates the entire process meaning your environments must be configured the same way.

Config file is properly configured for new installation.Setup path config file path and all parameters are proper. Also i have doubt that should i enable .net 3.5 to install sql server 2008 r2 express?(in some article i saw that it should be enabled) But i have installed same without enabling .net 3.5. I am confused how that possible?

That's very strange your error is explicitly complaining about your install dir. Maybe try copy another file to that dir and see if that works.

Hi nicbyte
Do you mean that install directory is corrupted or what?

Yeah it seems like something is wrong there. If you can copy files to it with the same permission your trying to install SQL with it would help troubleshoot the issue.
