Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that has Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services (SSAS 2012) installed.
  • You successfully install SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) on the computer.
  • You try to install some other SQL Server 2012 components on the computer, such as SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT).
In this scenario, the installation process freezes and never finishes.

Note Specifically, the Windows Installer process (Msiexec.exe) freezes and consumes excessive CPU resources after you install SQL Server 2012 SP1.

Cause

This issue occurs because the microsoft.analysisservices.wizard.v1.dll assemblies in SQL Server 2012 and in SQL Server 2012 SP1 target different versions of the Microsoft .NET Framework. Therefore, the installation of SQL Server 2012 SP1 leaves Windows Installer in an inconsistent state. Windows Installer tries to repair the installation and then blocks the next installation.
