I am installing SQL server 2012 Express.
I downloaded SQLEXPRWT_x64_ENU.exe from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=43351
While installing all seems ok untill just after the first picture below and then I get the message in the second picture.
Any idea. What can I check?

Microsoft Framework 3.5.1 is activated.

Works good up to here

Check in the installation log. Should be in %programfiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\120\Setup Bootstrap\Log

Hi Vitor,
There is no Microsoft SQL Server directory in Program files.
I also searched for 120 in Program files, but nothing there.
Any othet idea?

That was only the standard location but if you gave another location during setup you need to check there. Try to search for "Bootstrap".

Hi Vitor,

The issue arises about 60 seconds after I started the  SQLEXPRWT_x64_ENU.exe file, before any communication with me.

I don't find the bootstrap anywhere on my laptop.

Does that give you a clue?

It's strange.
Can you find a file named summary.txt?

I installed SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe and SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe sperately and the process ran through.
I think I ahd to give myself permission to create databases, which I did not bother, because I noticed that I got full rights. So now I will have to figure out where to go to grant those permissions.
Can you direct me?
I see the following on my All programs window. (w7)

SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is the GUI. It can be used for administration of SQL Server.
