Dear Community,

I wanted to install the developer edition, however, I keep getting this error message:

"We failed to download the files we require. Please check your network connection and try again."install.PNG

 

 

My network connection is working fine; however, my local disk is almost full. If that's the reason the installer is failing, is it possible to force it to download to another disk?

 

Thanks.

Same problem.

 

Both in SQL Server 2016 Express and SQL Server 2017 Express

same, so the blame is on MS ?

Same here, but only on one of my two devices on the same network. Cannot find any differences. Windows 10 both..

 

Any fixes?

Me to, I don't know what to do. Any help ?

YEAH, I just did network reset and I installed it with no problem!

Managed to install the express edition after the network reset. No help on the development version though.

I found I was getting the below error in event viewer (Along with the error OP is seeing) at each attempt to install SQL server Dev edition or express.

 

Addition Error: "A fatal error occurred while creating a TLS client credential. The internal error state is 10013."

 

Here are the steps (from at this post) I used:

 

 

1. In Control Panel, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Local Security Policy.

 

2. In Local Security Settings, expand Local Policies, and then click Security Options.

 

3.Under Policy in the right pane, double-click System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing, and then click Enabled.

 

4. Ran gpupdate /force 


Thank you,
Aaron.

I corrected the error by enabling TLS 1.0.
