SQL Server 2008 64-bit installation error 0x84B20001


I’m trying to install SQL server 64-bit and I’m getting the following error:

SQL server 2008 setup100.exe and setuppatch.exe cannot be run in this mode. If tou are running setup100.exe, start setup.exe instead.

I can’t find setup.exe for the 64-bit installation.

What can I do?




I think that you are trying to install from within the platform folder (ie x64, ia64 or x86).Go up one level and there you’ll find setup.exeTom/

But then how can I make it install the right version for the platform?

SQL Server setup will select the correct platform for you.Tom
