    Can't install SQL Server 2012

    I'm trying to install SQL Server 2012 alongside our existing SQL Server 2008 R2 (on Server 2008 R2) for the migration of SIMS.

    I can't even get the installer to work - its weird. When I run it, I got through the initial checks, select the option to Install a new standalone SQL server and then all I get is a blank list like this:

    This looks like its trying to update an existing SQL Server installation, but I haven't even got that far yet - and only SQL 2008 R2 is currently installed!

    Am I missing something obvious here?

    Oops! Just worked it out, somehow I've managed to overwrite the setup.exe with the same one from the SP2 installer package.

    My mistake!
