Microsoft SQL – Setup.rll is either not designed …

I came across this error the other day.  I’ve installed SQL 2008 through 2012 without any real issues.  Recently, I was trying to run the installer again so that I can add some features.  I kept getting this message.  It would even come up when I would try to do a change from Add/Remote Programs.  I figured out the fix and it was pretty simple.

Copy %InstallMedia%\resources\1033\setup.rll

to

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\SQLServer2008R2\Resources\1033

Make sure you overwrite the file.
