I'm trying to install some SQL Server 2008 R2 components.

The error I get is "The INSTANCESHAREWOWDIR command line value is not valid." (This is on the Feature Selection form and the boxes for the paths are disabled)

I googled for this and all the posts I find are 2 to 3 years old which makes me wonder if my problem is an old version of the SQL installer of just what may be the problem.

Any ideas? Thanks, Jack
