The problem

I have been trying to install SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2012. I continually get the same error:

Managed SQL Server Installer has stopped working

What I've tried

After initial googling, I've tried the following things:

  • Go through the list of hardware and software pre-reqs. All the software seems to be there by default on Server 2012 and my hardware meets the reqs.
  • Copy the installation media to the local drive and try to install from that (rather than a DVD). This produced the same error.
  • Based on another error message, I installed .NET 4.0 (which apparently is not on Server 2012 out of the box). Same error.
  • Install from command line. This didn't work either, but it gave me a different error:

Any ideas what I am missing?
