SQL 2008 SP2 Slipstream Issue

Now that SP2 for SQL 2008 has been released it is time to update our SQL 2008 slip-streamed installation files.  The slipstream process is the same, but I did run into one bug once the process was completed.  There appears to be a bug that when you have a slip-streamed version of SQL 2008, the installation cannot be run from a network drive when .NET 4 has been installed.  The following error may be received when attempting to launch setup.exe.

Also, the event viewer’s Application log will contain the following 1026 event ID error from .NET Runtime:



Application: setup100.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.Security.SecurityException
at Microsoft.SqlServer.Chainer.Setup.Setup.DebugBreak()
at Microsoft.SqlServer.Chainer.Setup.Setup.Main()

There are two workarounds for this issue.  The first is to uninstall .NET 4, then proceed with SQL 2008 installation, then reinstall .NET 4.  Or secondly, simply copy the installation files locally, then setup works as expected.

It appears that this issue is also present for the later CU’s of SQL 208 SP1 and SQL 2008 R2.
