SQL Server 2008 R2 enterprise fails with assembly error.

    Question

  • I have been trying to install Sql Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition on a 64-bit Windows 7 real machine (not a VM). Every single time it fails when installing the setup support files, during the "ExecuteStandardTimingsWorkflow" action. This is the dialog that comes up:

     

    "The following error has occured:

    An error occured during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.GridControl,fileversion="10.50.1600.1",version-"10.0.0.00000",culture="nuetral",publickeytoken="<number>",processArchitecture="x86". Please refer to Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x80131047.

    "

    I have tried running the setup.exe from a 32-bit command prompt, and an elevated command prompt. I am logged in as a system administrator. I removed a version of SQL Server that was previously on the system sql server 2008. I also had rebooted before all of these installation attempts.
