Hi, My system has Windows XP sp3 and windows installer 4.5.
I want to install sql server 2008 R2 RTM- Express  from command line. For that I am using the following command...

But I am getting the following error...

We do not have the entire logs attached to conclude if this is really the 8.3 filename issue. Please either attach the setup logs from %programfiles%\microsoft sql server\100\setup bootstrap\log.

If you are using the 8.3 filename format that truncates the names to 8 characters (please check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/973357 for description of the issue and the fix for SQL Server 2008), try using path names that fit to 8.3 format without any truncation.

If this is in fact the same issue, it was fixed in SQL Server 2008 RTM CU8, and SQL Server 2008 RTM CU6. Those CUs were not incorporated to the SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM release due to release timing.

We will port the fix to a future SQL Server 2008 R2 update.

I can reproduce this problem on SQL 2008 R2. It is caused by long folder names when running the install silently. I first experienced this issue in SQL2008 and Cumulative update 4 was "supposed to resolve the problem". It is simple to reproduce by placing the SQL install package in subfolders that contain long path names. When running the install silently from Installshield or Wise and it uses the shortname to launch then this error is reproduced.
e.g. Place SQL install in C:\SQL Install\setup.exe
go to command prompt and run c:\SQLINS~1\setup.exe

Please have a fix for this as it causes me many problems. This was not an issue on SQL 2005 or SQL2000.

I am attaching the log files. I ran this command 2-3 times but was unable to find "summary.txt".
