Hi all!

I've installed previously SQL 2022 Dev but then for some reason I've had an error when working with Power BI which lead me to uninstall it.

Now, I want to install again in the same machine and I'm getting this error. (see image attached)

Already tried:

  • uninstall all SQL folders in C: path
  • uninstall all SQL in Regedit
  • Run the instalation process as Admin

Can you help me figuring out what I'm doing wrong and how to correct it?


Error SQL 2022

    Hi @Paula Olim Mendonça,

    Component error code:          1639
    Component log file:            C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\160\Setup Bootstrap\Log\20230910_234200\sql_engine_core_inst_Cpu64_1.log
    Error description:             Invalid command line argument. Consult the Windows Installer SDK for detailed command line help.

    Here is a same thread about the error. You may have a double check.

    Try to run the command from command prompt:

    msiexec /x {specified instance}
