Resolution
*Warning: Take backups of any files prior to modifying them. Ensure the backups are in a location that will not be overwritten (i.e. the Desktop).
*Note: The Evaluation Editions are not supported indefinitely and a full license will be required for SQL and the software to continue working.


1. Close the installer
2. Copy the disc to the hard drive and move the Database.Core.broker.xml from the setup/BrokerFragments folder to a backup location.
3. Put the attached Database.Core.Broker.xml file that's attached to the case in the setup/BrokerFragments folder.
4. Run the installer again. 
5. Place the original file back in the setup/BrokerFragments folder when done.
