I have just got hold of a cloud windows server to host my sites and am in the process of setting it up. Therefor I need to get SQL server 2008 installled, but am coing up to the same obsticle at every turn. On installatio I get an error on the feature selection page stating:
The INSTANCESHAREDWOWDIR command line value is not valid. Please ensure the specified path is valid and different than the INSTANCESHAREDDIR path.
Now there is a bit of info arround this so I have unistalled any previous SQL files and running the exe with the following command included
rogram Files(x86)\Microsoft SQL Server" /INSTALLSHAREDDIR="c:\Prog
ram Files\Microsoft SQL Server" /ACTION=install
However each time I run it the share feature directory still points to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\
This is greyed out and so cannout be altered.
If I push next at this stage I get the messgage mentioned above.
Please help, I'm pullling my hair out at the moment
