SQL Server 2012 Installation on Windows 7 with 64 bit


  • Hello,

    I am trying to install SQL Server 2012 on Windows 7 on a 64 bit machine.  I have the SQL Server 2012 Developer's Edition with SP1.  When I run setup, it gives me the following error:

    Could not load "System Diagnostics, TraceSource from assembly.  System, Version =, culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"

    Please advise.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
