    Hi Mundford,
    Both of the links you have given are cumulative updates (which I think must be installed after installing SQL Server). But I cannot install SQL Server Express on my Windows 10 ARM VM. After going deep into the installation process and nearly at the end of it an error message appears as follows:

    Hi
    Yes, I had exactly the same problem and had been attempting everything I could think of with no success during the Parallels pre-release period and after; the same error message appeared as you've attached. What worked for me was to run the cumulative installe and then rerun the SQL Server Express install, which then succeeded. It seems to need whatever the cumulative installer needs for the downloaded 2019 installer to work.

    I hope this works for you as well.

    All the best
    Andy

    I've tried this update with full version of MS SQL Server, but still getting error when installing, anyone had success with this?
