Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP2 failed with error: -2068643838. Sophos Enterprise Console installation error
I was trying to install Sophos Enterprise Console on a new server (a process I have done many, many times) and got hit with a very generic error message, prompting me to look at the installer log file.
I had a look, and all looked happy until it tried to execute the following command to install SQL Express:
