Re: SQL Server 2014 x64 Installation fails

Had this problem a while ago as well.

Something is VERY WRONG with this server, permissions have been manipulated deeply.

 

Solution is here:

Workaround 2 did it for me:

As a workaround for the problem you can run the following command at the command prompt to reset the permissions in registry rather than rebuilding the box:

SECEDIT /CONFIGURE /CFG %WINDIR%\INF\DEFLTBASE.INF /DB DEFLTBASE.SDB /VERBOSE /AREAS REGKEYS

 

Disclaimer: The above command would revert all security settings to the default and thus may be used as a workaround to avoid rebuilding the server.

Re: SQL Server 2014 x64 Installation fails

Thanks everyone for the help and advise.

All the problems turned out to relate to local account settings and not being able to write changes to the Registry. It turns out the IT support company did not give me full local admin access.

Once they created a new account with all the relevant access, installation worked a dream.

Thanks again everyone for the very helpful advice.
