“Object reference not set to an instance of an object” –Installing SQL Server 2012 SP1 Core


I am setting up some virtual machines and some of them are Windows Server 2008 R2 core with SQL Server 2012 SP1 core.

I was not able to finish the installation, because the error “ Object reference not set to an instance of an object” was happening :

The following error occurred:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Error result: -2147467261

Result facility Code: 0

Result error Code: 16387

Please review the summary.txt log for further details

If you are facing the same problem, I solved installing  .NET 4.0

Go to the :

\redist\DotNetFrameworks folder and install dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64_SC.exe.

and be happy Smile
