Greetings,

I’m trying to install SQL Server 2019, I can’t get past an error that it can’t generate the XML document and install cancels.

 

Developer edition on Win 10 stand alone laptop.

 

I read that this is a common error, but I’m not finding a solution.

 

Please help, I’m new to this blog.

 

Thank you,

Hello akakuris, 

Our experts believe this is likely due to user didn’t have admin privileges during the installation, setup tried to generate/write XML documents and it is failing , so worth checking the SQL Server setup account that it has administrative privileges or not. If that’s the case, I’d expect the error code to reflect an access denied or perhaps a path/file not found, and we could refer the customer to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/sql/install/installation-fails-if-remove-user-right.

 

It could also be a bit more elaborate and be something like the example in this blog article - https://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/4276/sql-server-setup-error--there-was-an-error-generating-th....

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11294714/getting-xml-error-when-installing-sql-server-2012 is another similar error message that was due to a missing password.

https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/10d4ab5c-55be-4dd1-8ca7-13a1703bd9f0/sql-se... shows yet another potential cause, and also gives an example of the full error stack pulled from bootstrap logs.
