I have been trying install SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition for quite some time now.. I always get "stuck" at Install Setup Files, the install wizard just hides,

Now, i reviewed the log file for setup, which is: SqlSetup_1

There,i found these errors

Attempting to launch process (null)SQLServer2012\x86\ScenarioEngine.exe Error: Failed to launch process Error: Failed to launch local ScenarioEngine.exe: 0x80070003

The full SqlSetup_1 log:

Try putting the install files in a location that is not on your desktop. It seems there's an issue resolving the base path to that executable. – Jon Seigel Feb 25 '14 at 2:23

Worked!

My installer was nested 4 layers in and once I moved it to the root of C: bingo!

Thanks Jon!
