SQL Server Express 2019 Installation issue

Copper Contributor

I am having issues with SQL Server Express 2019 installing. It is looping through the same set of instructions. I have to kill the processes to stop the installation. We have the msi installing from our own setup.exe file. If I download the installer from the Microsoft site (same version as in our setup.exe), it installs with no issue. The text below is from the SQL installation log. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, it seems to be failing on installing the instance. All version files are installing (90,100,110,150).

@Cgil9999 , so you have embedded SQL Server installer in your customer installer?

Which parameters do you use? Best bet ist to install it once manually and then re-use the created INI file with all needed parameters.
