Error 1935 Microsoft.VC90.MFCLOC.
Applies to: SQL Server 2012 Express Edition with Tools, Windows Server 2008 R2.
I was installing SQL Server 2012 Express Edition on Windows Server 2008 R2
with SP1 when I received the following error:
Error 1935. An error occurred during the installation of assembly
'Microsoft.VC90.MFCLOC, version="9.0.30729.4974", publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",
processorArchitecture="x86",type="win32". Please refer to Help and Support for
more information. HRESULT:0x80071A30.
On the above screen I clicked on the OK button, then I received the another
message from SQL Server setup as shown below.
I clicked the Retry button and then SQL Server setup was able to finish
However, even when SQL Server setup finished successfully, I will download and
install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) anyway,
since the Microsoft.VC90.MFCLOC assembly shown on the error message is related
to VC++ 2008. If SQL Server setup would have aborted the SQL Server installation
when the first error appeared, I would have opted to install Microsoft Visual
C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package as first step to troubleshoot the issue.
So I downloaded the software from
and install it.
Once the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package was installed, I
then applied SP2 for SQL Server 2012 successfully too.
