MAP installation failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Installation of MAPS version 4.0.2925 on XPSP3 box fails on MSSQL installation with Unknown error 0x84b40000. Logs show:

    The /IAcceptSQLServerLicenseTerms command line parameter is missing or has not been set to true. It is a required parameter for the setup action you are running. By specifying this parameter and accepting the SQL Server license terms you acknowledge that you have read and understand the terms of use.
            Data:
              SQL.Setup.FailureCategory = InputSettingValidationFailure

    I was presented with an acknowledgement I had to accept to proceed with MSSQL installation; is some installer config file nonetheless missing this setting? Incidently, I was able to install SQLEXPRWT_x86_ENU.exe on the machine directly without error.

  • MAPS 4 can't install SQL Express 2008 R2 automatically due to a newly introduced required command line parameter in the SQL Express 2008 R2 setup package that MAPS 4 is unaware of.  Unfortunately, the URLs that used to point ot SQL 2008 that MAPS relied on to downoad SQL Express now point to SQL Express 2008 R2.  We're trying to get that sorted out on our side.

    Your choices to work around this are:

    1) manually install an instance of SQL Server (any version and and any edition from 2005 on).  If you do this, manually specify an instance name of MAPS and make sure that the default collation is set to "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS".  See the FAQ for screenshots and details if this is unfamiliar to you: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd450979.aspx

    2) Download the SQL Server Express Edition from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=129688 and select the "Install from previously downloaded installation files" option in the MAPS setup wizard.

    3) Use MAPS 5.0 when it releases next month, which can handle SQL Express 2008 R2.

    Thanks,

  • Went back and confirmed that MAPS 4.0 is still automatically downloading SQL 2008 and not SQL 2008 R2, so my assumption is that you manually downloaded the SQL 2008 R2 installer and then pointed the MAPS installer to it at install time, which failed.

     

    Either let MAPS download the correct version of SQL 2008 for you automatically, or use the SQL Express 2008 installer when pointing MAPS to an already downloaded file.  The MAPS 4.0 installer doesn't know how to work with the SQL 2008 R2 installer.  The RTM of MAPS 5.0 will be able to use the SQL 2008 R2 installer.
