    Hi @Technology,

    Thanks for your information.

    I checked out your error logs and found this this error message:

    Sco: File 'C:\SQL2022\Developer_ENU\x64\setup\x64\sql_engine_core_inst.msi' does not exist

    It seems that this is the reason for you to install SQL Server failure. This may be caused by some settings errors during the installation process.

    You can try to reinstall SQL Server. I got this link from a previous thread by Erland, I think it is very useful and explaining the steps in detail. Hope this can help you well.

    For this issue:

    Exit Code (Decimal):- 2068052377Error description: Invalid command line argument. Consult the windows installer SDK for detailed command line help.

    Here is a known issue like yours, you can try the method in this article to resolve it.

    In addition, the error message:

    Action "Install_sql_engine_core_inst_Cpu64_Action" failed during execution.

    Please ensure the specified instance has been installed.

    Please feel free to share your issues here if you have any confused.

    Best regards,

    Lucy Chen
