    Hi @Abhishek Bhalerao

    There are many reasons for the specified path not found error, such as invalid paths in the path directory, incorrect paths in the path environment, damaged software, etc.

    Maybe you can try uninstalling the stubborn sql server component and reinstalling it as an administrator. You can refer to this thread: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/527717/unable-to-install-sql-server-2019-the-system-canno.

    If these don't work, check the log files for detailed errors.
