Trying to Install Exchange Server 2019 ( CU12)


All prerequisites are met.


I keep getting this Error - 


The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
install-ExchangeSchema -LdapFileName ($roleInstallPath + "Setup\Data\"+$RoleSchemaPrefix + "schema0.ldf")

" was run: "Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.TaskException: There was an error while running 'ldifde.exe' to import the schema file 'C:\Windows\Temp\ExchangeSetup\Setup\Data\PostWindows2003_schema0.ldf'. The error code is: 8245. More details can be found in the error file: 'C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local\Temp\ldif.err'
