  • I am unable to attach screenshot of error message so writing here-

    The process can not access the file

    'C:\Users\Dell\AppData\Local\Temp\Sqlwep-uni-(8dae3845-c1c4-4712-9d59-ecaf1d4c5679).mof' because it is being used by another process.

    Here I want to mention here the installation completed with error and i am unable to use sql server.

  • Hello

    The MOF file is the file of SQL Server WMI Provider, which are compiled automatically by SQL Server Setup. The WMI provider is a published layer that is used with the SQL Server Configuration Manager snap-in for Microsoft Management Console (MMC) and the Microsoft SQL Server Configuration Manager.

    The issue can occur in the following scenarios:

    1.    The .mof file is being used by some other process, you can try to use this tool to find if some other process is using this file.
    2.    The installation process has no permission to read this file, please run the installation file with administrator permission.

    I'm wondering if a link to ProcExp or ProcMon was intended?   <eg>
