sql 2012 install

Nov 4, 2013 at 10:43 AM
Any one has experienced problems with sql 2012 install? What are the prerequisites?
I've created c:\program files\Microsoft Sql Server\DReplayClient\ResultsDir and WorkingDir to make it work.
The install is taking lot of time.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Sql2008R2 has worked fine.

Thank you for taking the time to report your issue. I'm not aware of any issues related to installing SQL 2012 using SPADE, but I would be happy to help you troubleshoot. Can you provide the exact error message that you received as well as a the SPADE installer log file? If you would rather not post the log, I can provide you with an email address to send it to me directly.

As far as prerequisites, the ones for SQL Server 2012 can be found here - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506.aspx. SPADE requires nothing different for SQL 2012 support than is required for any other version of SQL 2005+.

Thank you. Would you please look in to this error which has been happening for sql 2008 and sql20012.

Skipping Action: Finish Page

Action is being skipped due to following restriction:

Condition "Is the user's scenario set to EditionUpgrade" did not pass as it returned false

The following is not an error, but is an informational message stating that the Install Action selected was not EditionUpgrade:

(01) 2013-08-21 15:32:02 Slp: Skipping Action: FinishPage
(01) 2013-08-21 15:32:02 Slp: Action is being skipped due to the following restrictions:
(01) 2013-08-21 15:32:02 Slp: Condition "Is the user's scenario set to EditionUpgrade" did not pass as it returned false and true was expected.

Can you provide me the entire log file for review? It should be in a path similar to the following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap\Log\20130821_151926\Detail.txt

You can email it to me at mike@sqltechmike.com along with the SQLInstallerLog.html file in the SPADE working folder and I will review them for errors.

I initially had issues with the 2012 Install. There was a problem with my installer. I would recommend trying to re-download the media and see if this fixes the issue.

The SPADE is failing for SQL2008R2 on Windows 2008 R2.
Can you please let me know how you made it work.
