  • I also have the problem now... it hangs for Hours (SQL Server 2012 SP1). If I stop the install (with no stop / cancel button), I will just scared to mess-up my PRODUCTION server, and spend additional hours to uninstall everything, then re-install.

    Just for info, I choose (according to TFS 2012 install guide - but it was dealing with SQL 2008 R2) "NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE" for ALL (except SQL Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher) since it is read only and set to "NT Service\MSSQLFDLauncer".

    I guess I should have left the standard vanilla (as opposed to the TFS doc)!

    If anyone has a solution, thanks.

  • I had the same issue, do not modify accounts just let it go with defaults and change it later on..

  • From the Log, I seam to have a problem with the user account that was set.

    I have killed the process, then re-start the install with the standard vanilla, hoping that TFS 2012 will behave OK.
