  • Hi Hui,


    According to your description, my understanding is that you failed to install the SQL Server 2016 Developer via using a configuration file. If anything is misunderstood, please tell me.


    As the exit message showed that "The setting 'TROPENLICENSETERMS' specified is not recognized." I also checked my SQL Server 2016 Developer configuration file, there was not a setting 'TROPENLICENSETERMS' in the configuration file. However I found that there is a setting 'IACCEPTROPENLICENSETERMS' in my configuration file like the following screenshot.


    In the configuration file, there is not a 'TROPENLICENSETERMS' setting. Please check if the setting 'IACCEPTROPENLICENSETERMS' is correct. If not, please change the setting name. Besides, if it is convenient, could you please share us your configuration file for analysis via any trusted network disk.
