I am trying to install SQL Server 2014 Express (64-ADV) on a Windows 10 machine, but getting the following error -
"Attempted to perform an unauthorised operation". The failed components are Database Engine Services, Reporting Services - Native, SQL Server Replication and Full Text and Semantic Extractions for Search.
As this is the latest version of Windows 10 I assume I don't need any update/install for the .NET 3.5 or 4.0 environments. They aren't listed explicitly in Programs and Features but show up as partially enabled in Windows Services On/Off.
Do I need to install Visual Studio as a pre-requisite?
I have performed a system restore after the last failure to try to get a clean baseline to restart, and deleted folders etc from Program Files.
If anyone can help it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
