So I have been fighting this off and on for over a month. All I am trying to do is install the localDB for SQL Server 2012 Express.

When I install from the .msi all goes well until it gets to the starting services. The install hangs and then aborts with the VSS cannot be started message. Further investigation reveals it times out, VSS that is.

I thought that this was a straight forward installation. Any suggestions appreciated.
