SQL 2012 - Windows 7 64-bit - Parallels Desktop 8 - MacBook Pro Retina

    Question

  • Hi there,

    is anyone of you running the following system configurations:

    MacBook Pro Retina OS X 10.8

    Windows 7 with Parallels Desktop 8

    SQL 2012 or SQL 2008R2

    I tried out everything, but it won't work...

    The installation of the SQL 2008R2 failed because of missing perflib-files and values. The threads i found, haven't been helpfully yet.

    The installation of the SQL 2012 failed because of missing ...-install-postmsi-cpu64-...-files.

    Parallels said, that this would be a Mircosoft-problem, Mircosoft says, that it would be a Parallels-problem.

    I just want to know, if someone else has got this thing running, specially SQL 2012, without finally changing to bootcamp -> that's not the way I wanted to go...

    Thank you so much!

  • I suspect the problem is in your configuration.

    It also may be an issue with your media drive (.ISO). This happened to me before.

  • yes indeed! I suspect that too. Parallels told me to mount the iso-image on mac-side. I did - the same problem. After more than 50% of running the setup-procedure the following message appears:

    Error: the system can't find the file "ASConfigAction_install_postmsi_Cpu64"

    no matter if I mount the iso-image on Win7 or on Mac

    so where should I begin to search?

  • I would suggest you to copy all the setup files\folders to your local disk after mounting the iso

    I've seen similar problems while installing directly from iso\dvd disks.

    Copying the setup binaries(setup files) locally and then installing helps almost-always :)

  • thanks - I tried it immediately - I copied the setup-files in a new folder on c:\SQL2012FULL and started the setup-precedure, but it didn't work again. the same error-code: can't find the file "ASConfigAction_install_postmsi_Cpu64"

  • thanks - I've already read that

    this was not my idea. the suggestion came from the sw-development ;-))

    just to complete the picture: I tried to install express, standard, developer, enterprise of both - 2012 and 2008R2

    to copy the files from the iso-image to c\: and to setup from this location is my next step. the first trial failed, because I snapped the enterprise-edition. mea culpa!

  • next step:

    downloaded SQL2012 Server Express from Mircosoft - copied all files from iso-image to a folder located on c:\ - started setup

    nothing changed - the same error-message as before

  • okay - thx - so there's no need to change the firewall-settings for me.

    I can't imagine, that nobody else has a similar problem. No ideas anymore how to get it solved.

  • I think you didn't clearly uninstall SQL Server before attempting to re-install another version. I remember I spent a week or more installing SQL Server 2012 due to the bug in the installation module. This is a blog for the problem I encountered
