  • Вопрос

  • I'm trying to install SQL Server Express  2012 sp2, through command line,


    but i'm getting this error "The syntax of argument "/HIDECONSOLE" is incorrect;Either the delimiter '=' is missing or there is one or more space characters before the '='"  Error 0x84B40001

    I removed the entire /HIDECONSOLE argument in my command, and still get the same error.

  • Hi Nissanna,

    The above error is caused by that there are two  or more space characters before parameters ” /ACTION” and “/FEATURES”, please change the commands to be the following code and check if you can install SQL Server successfully.


    For more information of installing SQL Server from command prompt, please review this link.

  • Hi Nissanna,

    For the error "01/24/2016 23:53:34.553 Setup closed with exit code: 0x84C40013", please make sure you have Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 installed.

    For the screenshot that only have 3 options, after you click Next, it will reload the wizard, and more options will be visible.
