I have a Windows 7 64 bit machine running SQL Server 2008 Enterprise.

I would like to upgrade it to SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. I loaded the media on the machine, but when i double click on the setup.exe, it displays a command box for a split second, goes away, and then nothing happens.

I tried rebooting the box, running as Administrator (by the way, I am part of local Admin group on this box), but nothing happens when I double click on setup.exe.

I have used this same media on other machines and it works fine.

Are there any logs that I can check to see what may be causing the issue?

thanks
scott

Rather than double-clicking on the exe, open a command window and run setup.exe from the command window, which may let you see the error message.

I assume you downloaded the 64-bit install for SQL 2008R2. After you run that from the command line, is there anything in the task manager that you can identify as being associated with the install?

I really don't know what is going on, and will not be of much help since I can't poke around in the system.
