I downloaded ExpressAndTools 64BIT\SQLEXPRWT_x64_ENU.exe from Microsoft. When I tried to install it I get the following error:

enter image description here

But it does not say exactly what I have missing.

My environment is configured as follows:

  • Windows 7 Ulitimate 64 bits
  • 4 GB of RAM and enough HDD space
  • Intel i3 processor (enough for SQL SERVER 2014)
  • .Net 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 installed on my computer

Still it says something is wrong without even telling me what.

How to solve that issue?

  • It seems you haven't meet the Config requirements. Check this link msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506(v=sql.120).aspx – CR241 Jul 13 '17 at 16:32

    The error is saying you don't have the proper OS Version or Service Pack level. You say you're running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit but does it have SP1? – Sean Gallardy - Retired User Jul 13 '17 at 16:37
  • @SeanGallardy true I don t have SP1... Did not think it was required – Jason Krs Jul 13 '17 at 16:40
  • @ Oh yeah Sean I just checked.. SP1 is required... My mistake – Jason Krs Jul 13 '17 at 16:42

    @SeanGallardy I updated my Windows with SP1 and all .Net versions but I still get the sme error – Jason Krs Jul 14 '17 at 11:54

If you can open the SQL Server Installation Center with this installer it will give you a lot of useful info.

In the Planning section you can find the Hardware & Software requirements. Or: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506(v=sql.120).aspx

    The problem is that I can't even open the the installer. The only thing I get when I double click setup is the popup I posted. I updated my OS to SP1 plus all .Net versions but I still get the same popup – Jason Krs Jul 14 '17 at 11:56
