Can't install Sql Management console 2008 r2
Posted on 2012-09-14
I have a computer with Sql 2008 R2 installed. The management console was not installed by the previous caretaker so I am trying to install it. I have downloaded the file (64 bit). The installation is on a Microsoft server 2008 std. edition. The installed sql version is 2008 R2 std.
When I run the management console installation I get through the processes of the installation without errors but when it comes up to the Feature Selection screen, the shared feature (Management tools - basic and sql client connectivity sdk) are checked but the checkboxes are greyed out. When I click <next> I get a dialog box error message that states: There are validation errors on this page. The validation error is ' to continue one or more features must be selected.' I have no way to change the selection.
Can someone point me in the right direction to get this installed so I can backup the database?
