running SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe. the tool makes it all the way to "Install Setup Files" then stops. I've run it manually with setup.exe /Action=install /updateenabled=false it does the same thing. The install returns me to my c: prompt without any errors. In "programs and features" nothing has been installed. Has anyone else run into this?

Dear friend,

Check the following path
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap\Log\Summary.txt

then find the failure information.

Regards,

If the SQL install stops when installing the Setup files, typically this is because one of the pre-requisite components has not been installed. Unfortunately just about the only clue you get about this problem is an absence of installation logs, so it can be difficult to troubleshoot.

Check what versions of .Net, Powershell, and Windows Installer are needed, and make sure they are installed before you run the SQL Express install. For SQL 2012 express you need:
.Net 3.5
Windows installer 4.5
Powershell V2
.Net 4.0

Note that .Net 3.5 and .Net 4.0 must both be installed, 4.0 does not include the 3.5 components. You should also run the installs in the sequence listed as the pre-reqs also have their own pre-reqs.

What about the setup rules? Did you skip it?
