How to resolve installation fails for Microsoft SQL CLR Types in EngageOne Content Author



Content Author is being installed on a Windows 64-bit operating system.  Therefore, the supporting SQL installation files need to also be 64-bit.


Warning: Failed to connect to the DOC1 Resource Server at 'localhost' on port 50241. Check configuration is correct and the Resource Server service is running.

Error: Product: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Objects -- Setup is missing an installation prerequisite: -Microsoft SQL Server 2008 System CLR Types. To continue, install SQL Server System CLR Types from and then run the Setup operation again



Install CLR Types from the Microsoft website:

Click the download button, then select the file 1033\x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi (64-bit).  Download and install it.

Get the Management objects:  1033\x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi (64-bit) and install it.

Check the IIS Settings to make sure the App Pool for the CCMContentAuthor website (DefaultAppPool) has .NET v4.0 and Enable 32-bit Applications  selected.


As an example, if SQL is version 2008 R2, then the support SQL files (e.g. CLR Types & Management Objects) MUST match the SQL 2008 R2 version!
