SQL Server 2012 CTP3 "Denali" Installation failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Installation of SQL Server 2012 CTP3 aborted with the error message

    SQL Server setup has encountered the following error:

    -the type initializer for 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Configuration.Sco.Collation' threw an exception

    I tried installing it on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 x64 SP2.

    All prerequisites [.Net Framework 3.5, PowerShell 2.0] were met.

    Thanks in advance,

    The following is a part of log file.
