I had SQL Server 2008 R2. But then I need to have SP1. I downloaded SQLServer2008R2SP1-KB2528583-x64-ENU from Microsoft website and run it. After installation everything was ok, but SQL Server Management Studio didn't work. I downloaded SQL Server Management Studio SP1, but no luck.

After some googling I decided to re-install SQL Server. I totally removed SQL Server and try to run R2 SP1 installer again. But got following issue:

  1. SQL Server installation center opens
  2. I click "New installation"
  3. SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup screen opens and offer to install support files
  4. Click Next
  5. Progress goes to 100%, seems everything ok, but window disappears and nothing happens....

Logs:

  • 04/29/2012 16:09:15.372 Attempting to run user requested action from local setup100.exe
  • 04/29/2012 16:09:15.430 Attempting to launch process C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\SQLServer2008R2\x64\setup100.exe
  • 04/29/2012 16:09:15.463 Error: Failed to launch process
  • 04/29/2012 16:09:15.513 Error: Failed to launch local setup100.exe: 0x80070003

Does anybody know what's problem?

Thanks

There is a log file in the logs directory where you want to try to install it. This file should contain information that gets you going. –  cairnz Apr 29 '12 at 8:51
    
Attempting to launch process C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\SQLServer2008R2\x64\setup100.exe - there is no directory 'SQLServer2008R2' –  Renatus Apr 29 '12 at 9:17
