I don't know if this best place to pose this problem, but here goes.
I am trying to install Sql Server 2012 Developer Edition on my Windows 7 64-bit workstation, and keep getting a failure to install certain parts of it:
- Reporting Services - Native
- Database Engine Services
- Data Quality Services
- Full-Text and Semantic Extractions for Search
- Sql Server Replication
The error I get for each of these is "Wait on the Database Engine recovery handle failed." The error code for all of them is 0x851A001A.
The frustrating part of this is that I am invited to check the Sql Server error log for potential causes. The log is inaccessible - I can't open any file there.
This is happening on a new workstation. My old workstation, likewise W7-64Bit, had no problem installed SqlServer 2012.
