Newbie's problem

Fri Jun 11, 2021 7:33 am

Hi there, I am a newbie and having a problem with silent install SQLServer. SQLServer(+Tools) unpacked in the folder [AppDataFolder]\[Manufakturer]\[ProgramName]\prerequisites. How to change this path? Because there is an error exceeding the number of characters(>260) in the path.

Hello Joshua and welcome to our forums,

The path where your setup will extract its' prerequisites can be found in the "Prerequisites" page --> "Packages" --> "Global Prerequisite Options" --> "Download/extraction folder".

Additionally, you may want to have a look over the following article I've created in the past regarding silent installation of SQL Server 2017:

Install SQL Server 2017 Silently/with BasicUI

Hope this helps!
