(Solved) ElsaWin Error Code: -2068052713 on Win 8 Win 10

This is for those who has problems of ElsaWin 5.x on Windows 8 or Windows 10 installation because of SQL server (2008 and 2008 R2) Error Code: -2068052713 ELSAWINDB could not be installed.


Error message:

The SQL server instance ELSAWINDB could not be installed. ErrorCode: – 206852713

The setup program will be aborted.



Just go to Control Panel/Program and Features, on the left Turn Windows Features On or Off, make sure .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) box is checked with everything inside it. It should work now, the problem is the 5.0 update SQL server installation. You will still have the SQL server warning, but it will still install.

Make sure to right click and run everything with Administrator permission.




For 64-bit version of Windows 8 and 10 (most of newer computer or laptops), the only ElsaWin that support are versions 4 or newer. The current one now is 5.2 which includes some of the 2016 models.
ElsaWin requires .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 to work. Windows 8 & 10 use .NET Framework 4.x but they also have the options can be turn on in “Turn Windows features on or off” in Control Panel/Programs and Features. If you don’t have these enabled correctly, we should get Error Code: -2068025713 ELSAWINDB could not be installed.

Elsawin Version 4.0 and 4.1 update should not have any problems installing first regardless, but most of the problems exist in the version 5.0 update when the SQL 2008 is installed. Windows 10 will give warning that the SQL 2008 may not be compatible, but it won’t stop the installation if everything is update correctly.

Again, make sure to run the setup.exe with Administrator permission
