Server Component Installation Failed - exit code 4

Postby PDinCA » Thu Jun 26, 2014 5:39 pm

Win8.1 Pro, SB, SQL Server 2014 Enterprise and Express (with ADV) on the machine.

Uninstalled server components because the UI complained of a problem with a server dll.

Attempted to install from the UI and the message below was emitted.

I clicked the "Details" link but no dice, so went to the page manually.

There is no exit code 4 documented, so I'm clueless what to do next...

Help, please.

BTW: All I want to do is deactivate the license so I can use it on a QA server...

Code: Select all

Exit code 4 indicates a fatal error during the installation process.

Could you please try installing the server components manually, by copying the installer (SQBServerSetup.exe) found in the SQL Backup folder, to the target machine, and run the installer?
