I tried all possible ways to install it. But it didn't work out. I'm not a tech guy. So please help me out from this. Component error code: 0x851A0019, Exit code (Decimal):-2061893607.

    Hi @Joseph

      SQLCOLLATION:                  Indic_General_90_CI_AS  

    You cannot have this collation as the server collation, Indic_General_90_CI_AS works only with unicode character set

    Please try to uninstall and then install again, when you run the setup wizard and come to the Server configuration page, you need to make the choice of collation
