Installation help please


#1

Hello,
Using Windows 7 Prof. 64 bit in Virtual Machine
I have downloaded SQLServer2008R2SP2-KB2630458-x64-ENU.exe from Microsoft site.
Run it and in the program menu I got installation center. For installation, I right click the above exe and extracted in E:\SQLInstallMedia folder. Again I run installation center from program menu. Click on New installation of SQL Server and browse the E:\SQLInstallMedia folder, a black popup window show for 1 second and disappears and nothing coming up for a fresh installation.

Kindly help me how do I proceed for complete installation.

There is no issue of disk spage and ram.
There are many files in %tmp%, which file should I read please.

Hi,

Are you trying to install a brand new instance of SQL Server or applying service pack 2 to an existing instance on your desktop?

Your initial post does not make that clear to me.

The file you have downloaded is only SP2.

Forgive me if I have got the wrong end of this question.
