If you encounter this error during installation, it is likely to be a defect in the Microsoft SQL Server installer. In many cases, restarting the Enterprise Console installer should resolve the problem.
If re-running the installation program doesn't fix the problem, we suggest that you view the SQL Installation logs to confirm that the error occurs during the installation of Enterprise Console only.
