SQLServer2008 R2 BPA

  • Hi All,

    I'm not able to install SQLServer2008 R2 BPA.


    Log Name: Application

    Source: MsiInstaller

    Event ID: 11722

    Task Category: None

    Level: Error

    Keywords: Classic

    User: <Username>

    Computer: <Machine name>


    Product: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 BPA -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action EnablePSRemoting, location: powershell.exe, command: -NoLogo -NoProfile -Command Enable-PSRemoting -force


    Open a command prompt with Administrative Privileges

    Change to the directory where the .msi file resides

    Type msiexec /i <MSI Name> SKIPCA=1

    MSI Name will either be SQL2008R2BPA_Setup32.msi or SQL2008R2BPA_Setup64.msi depending on your platform

    Once BPA is installed, open a PowerShell prompt with Administrative Privileges

    Execute the following commands


    winrm set winrm/config/winrs `@`{MaxShellsPerUser=`"10`"`}

    I have tried the above solution but still not able to install.

    Please advice.

    Thanks and Regards,


  • I realize this is an old thread, but I just had this error. The cause was the powershell part failing to run because I had a NIC set to public connection type.

    The powershell error was:

    Set-WSManQuickConfig : WinRM firewall exception will not work since one of the network connection types on this machine

    is set to Public. Change the network connection type to either Domain or Private and try again.
