    Just trying to install the database engine:

    What I've tried:

    Exploded the ISO to a local drive.

    copied setup.rll to the program files....resource\1033 

    gave Everyone group full access to users\administrator\appdata folder, windows\temp folder, program files folder, etc.

    downloaded trial version of SQL 2014 SP2, same error.

    Uninstalled, reinstalled.

    Uninstalled 3.5 .NET, reinstalled

    Uninstalled Visual C++ redistribution files and reinstalled.

  • It is.  It is actually for a college so they are using their volume licensing ISO on their VM.
