SQL Server install error

Hello,

I am attempting to perform a routine installation of a new instance on SQL Server, namely an Analysis Services instance.

When I configure everything it appears to begin setting up then stops with an error. The log is posted below.

Thanks in advance!

Interesting.  1624 means

"Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid."

Now, in case you didn't know, a transform is an MST file that is applied to the MSI installer to modify its behaviour in some way.  It is unlikely that these cannot be found, since you are most likely running from an official install source.

As you mention you are installing a new instance, have you made sure any old instances are not present?  If not, remove them.

If this still doesn't help, try running the install in repair mode by appending /action=repair to the command line.

HTH!
