    I have this really, really irritating problem due to which I can't use VAMT 3.0.

    I can't install SQL Server 2012 x64 properly in my Windows 8 RTM x64. Everytime I try to install it, I get this error:

    SQL2.jpg

    When I click on OK, the installation proceeds & it finishes. After that, I see this screen:


    SQL1.jpg

    So due to the first two features not being installed, I am not able to connect to the database in VAMT 3.0, & hence not use it.

    Anybody has any suggestions? I've googled for long hours, tried various possible solutions, but none worked. :(
