Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup fails when installing Management Tools or SQL Native Client without any specific errors.
|Installation Progress Management Tools - Complete/Basic Status Failed|
|Complete with failures|
This issue is caused by leftover setup files and registry keys. The problem can be resolved by running this Fix It program from Microsoft. Tell the program you're experiencing a problem installing a program and select "Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Native Client" from the list of programs. After the program finished cleaning the system you can rerun Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup.
