I had SQL Server 2008 Express installed in this computer and wanted to install R2 and then the problems begun. I tried almost everything, uninstall previous version, delete registry keys, reboot, download software again and still get the same error.

2011-12-14 09:32:37 Slp: Running Action: PreMsiTimingConfigAction
2011-12-14 09:32:37 Slp: The object state property 'workflow' is null/empty.
2011-12-14 09:32:37 Slp: Error: Action "PreMsiTimingConfigAction" failed during execution.
2011-12-14 09:32:37 Slp: Completed Action: PreMsiTimingConfigAction, returned False

I've also read all the messages about this error but still not working. Is there any solution other than re-install the OS again?
Thanks for your help.

Hello, since we haven't heard back from you on this one we are closing the item. If you can provide setup logs we can re-open.

Hello, the dev looked at the setup files and fournd that they were for the repair operation. Could you run the installation again and if that doesn't succeed then send us the setup log files?

Hi, can you attach the setup logs so we can better understand the error you're receiving?
They're located at: %programfiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap\Log\

There may be many folders with timestamps. Zip the appropriate one and attach it.
