  • Troubleshooting SQL Server 2008 Express installations with WebPI

    One of the challenges of troubleshooting SQL installations with WebPI is that sometimes the details passed back to Webpi do not provide enough information to tell you how to resolve the issue. This is not the fault of WebPi or the SQL installer, but due to the fact that not all of the errors are exposed  to the external process(WebPI) therefore all we can report is that something failed.   When this occurs you need to examine the SQL logs manually to find the details for the installation failure. In this blog we will help identify some of the common failures and provide the resolutions for each.
